Two Firefox extensions that you'll want

If you do any sort of Japanese reading on the Internet, you'll want these two Firefox extensions:

XHTML Ruby Support
Furigana Injector

The first one adds proper ruby (a.k.a. furigana, in the case of Japanese) support to Firefox. The second one is more interesting: it adds furigana to kanji on websites that don't have it, making it much easier to read Japanese text.

An interesting side-effect of having proper ruby support in Firefox is that the times in blogger look quite odd, with the full date above them.

    You can disable this in the plugin configuration, if you deselect "Show Invisible Information as Ruby"
