Brimstone

About

Brimstone is a Firefox extension for the Warbook Facebook application.  It was written when Warbook was one of the more popular apps on Facebook.  However, it looks like those days are gone and the developers are currently more interested in developing iPhone apps (which is probably a lot more profitable).

What does it do?

Brimstone is a sidebar which when open will monitor your actions on Warbook.  It will then store information such as your kingdom and army size as well as remembering the result of your Spy spells.  This allows you to compare your kingdom against potential targets and attack accordingly.  It will also remember who you've attacked and who's attacked you.  Eye for an eye and all that.

    Well apparently, the Warbook mana server has been down for months now and nobody seems to be inclined to do anything about it. There are still some people playing it for reasons of their own but I don’t think it[…]
