For those of us that are way behind on your favorite web comic, the only way to make any progress is to:
- Open a bookmark to the latest comic you've read
- Read any number of comics
- Manually copy and paste the new link to the latest comic you've read back in to your bookmark
This add-on automates that process by providing you a one click bookmark updater. It works by finding the bookmark whose link is closest to your current tab (ie, the closest link to your current tab of http://xkcd.com/699/ might be your bookmark to http://xkcd.com/680) and replacing that bookmark's link with your current tab's link. In the case where there are two bookmarks that are equally close, you'll get a popup saying that the add-on could not find a unique closest bookmark and no changes will be made.
NOTE: No button will appear by default when you install this add-on. Go to View->Toolbars->Customize... and you'll be able to click and drag the ComicUpdater icon anywhere you want it.
This add-on is also available for Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pclklbdlpfhhbigalgggdfgiegbkipne
