Parrotfish: A Browser Extension to Embed More Content on Twitter

If you’re like me and quite enjoy the new Twitter.com layout, with its embedding of content straight into the site allowing you to see pictures and videos from various sources without having to open new pages, you’re going to love Embed.ly’s new Parrotfish extension. It’s like content embedding on steroids, with really smart algorithms to determine the most likely content from a referenced page. Images, videos, text—their supported content sources are really quite extensive.

I installed it this morning and I’m already loving it. Works in Chrome, Safari and Firefox (3.6; 4.0 not tested).
