Lazarus: The Firefox Extension, Not the Dead Guy

    By Jeremy Thursday, August 27, 2009

    I stumbled across an interestingly named Firefox extension the other day, on the recommended screen in the Firefox get add-ons window: Lazarus.

    We all know the story of Lazarus, a man Jesus wept for and then rose from the dead. It's a momentous event in which Christ not only showed his emotional connection with us and his complete humanity in that he wept for Lazarus, but it also demonstrated Christ's divinity in his power over death when he raised Lazarus from the dead. (Photo Credit)

    With that in mind, you can see why this curiously named add-on caught my attention and piqued my interest immediately. How could you possibly connect such a powerful story and use the name for a simple Firefox extension? Okay, so you might think it's a bit blasphemous, but I think the author had good intentions in mind and for that, I decided to post. Although a bit of a stretch (hence this post's tag), I think this kind of thing is in line with the Christnology blog; if not just in good humor.

    The Lazarus Firefox extension is an aptly named add-on that will "resurrect" your lost form data upon a browser crash, server time-out, session expiration, etc. If you have been using the internet for any length of time, you have undoubtedly come across the common annoyance of having filled out a lengthy form and hitting submit only to find that your session has expired, or the web server just went down. Your only hope of recovery is to hit the back button and hope that the form is still filled out -- unfortunately, most of the time it's not. This extension is set to appease your woes.

    Resurrect those forms with Lazarus, the Firefox extension.
