SSCP 1.2.2 (Firefox 3.0+)
Older versions

StyleSheet Chooser Plus is an enhanced version of Stylesheet Chooser (an extension for former version of Firefox, not maintened anymore by its creator Rob Tougher). SSCP permits choice of document stylesheets, if page's author provides alternatives styles. The choice is kept during navigation and between sessions.

Detailed features follows (since v1.0) :

  • Customizes View > Page Style menu with SSCP menu
  • Adds a status bar icon to Firefox, in order to select easily a style. Icon's appearance change whenever there are alternatives styles or not
  • Keeps style choice during navigation and even if Firefox is closed
  • Propagates (or not, according to the preferences) the style choice to other open windows, if the same website is open in it
  • If user disables all styles for the current site, when he leaves it, styles are reactivated (the default behavior of Firefox is to keep the disable state for the tab)
  • Saved styles can be deleted from preferences
  • Localization
  • Preferences are imported from former version of SSCP or Stylesheet Chooser
  • Stop using old version numbering based on last Stylesheet Chooser version

For curious people, technicals details :

  • SSCP uses new Firefox 2 Storage system (SSCP 1.0 is therefore only compatible with this version and later ones). SSCP 1.1.0 relies on Firefox 3 content preferences system.
  • SSCP uses mainly native code of Firefox to apply style selection, this to avoid reinvent the wheel, like with previous versions which have its own code
  • Object oriented Javascript
