FireBible is a Bible reading program that integrates with Firefox. It coordinates with either JSword or Bible Desktop.
The software installs pretty easily, but I had some difficulty getting it to work after it was installed. The instructions on the FireBible website are a bit confusing. After some experimentation, though, I figured out that it was pretty easy to use FireBible in conjunction with Bible Desktop. Here are a few observations I have, after using FireBible for a few days:
- Installing Bibles via Bible Desktop is pretty quick and easy. Each module only takes a few seconds to install.
- The good news is, you can bookmark favorite passages in FireBible, and add them right to your Firefox bookmarks. This could be the main handy feature in FireBible.
- The bad news is, the layout of FireBible is pretty limited. You can only read one version at a time, and open a sidebar to read commentaries and such.
- Since I'm using Bible Desktop to install all the Bibles and commentaries, I'm thinking it's just easier to use Bible Desktop, and completely dispense with FireBible.
I will share more thoughts on FireBible as I get more familiar with it. Meanwhile, I will also add a wiki for Bible Desktop, as that program is quick and easy to install and has several nice features.
Feel free to try FireBible, and share any thoughts you may have here.
