Click2Call v0.0.1 Released

On Friday, a co-worker noted that our in-house phone system has a “click-to-call” capability to allow you to trigger the system to call a specific phone number on your behalf and then connect you via your desk phone, all by simply issuing a HTTP request to the right URL. He thought this was pretty cool, but wanted something that would auto-link phone numbers in web pages (such as our intranet-based phone book) to the phone system to allow him to simply call numbers by clicking on them in his web browser.

A couple of hours, some Firefox-fu, and I’m proud to reveal Click2Call. It’s a simple Firefox extension that looks for phone numbers in web pages, and links them to your phone system’s “click-to-call” functionality using a URL pattern you configure. Enjoy!
