What's New
  • 1.1 release, after private 1.0 beta test (yes, the version numbers don't make sense)
  • mozdev.org

FlagFox is a Mozilla FireFox extension which displays the flag of the location of the current server. It achieves this by using an IP address to country database rather than domain-name top-level-domains (eg ".uk" or ".br"), and so works with all sites. Clicking the flag takes you to Wikipedia page for that country.

Notes:
FlagFox uses no additional network resources. It does one DNS lookup which is guaranteed to be a local DNS cache hit. All images and the mapping database is kept in the extension (which is why the extension is so large!).

Changelog:
1.2 - Maintenance release

1.1 - Initial public release on MozDev.org 1.0 - Initial limited release
