We are proud to announce Ubiquity 0.1.5. Since the last major update, Ubiquity has gained a sleeker look and a smarter, more stable core. Ubiquity has also gained the ability to be skinned: anyone who knows how to write standards-complaint CSS can now create and share a custom Ubiquity skin.
- Beautiful: Ubiquity has a new look that increases its visual simplicity and lays the groundwork for full keyboard access.
- Skinnable: Anyone can now give Ubiquity a new look. It’s as simple as a little bit of CSS. That’s how the new look was created! Once you’ve created a skin, it’s easy to share it with the world: you can subscribe to skins just like you can subscribe to commands.
- Speed: Ubiquity is now much snappier.
- Stability: This is the most reliable Ubiquity yet, with much of its internals refactored.
- Relevancy: Ubiquity now makes it easier to issue the commands you want. It remembers the commands you use — using the same technology that powers the Awesome Bar — as well as matching anywhere in a command name.
If you already have Ubiquity, it will automatically update itself soon (if you are feeling impatient, you can also go to the add-ons manager and click “Find Updates”). If you don’t already have Ubiquity installed, you can get the latest version here.

Many people contributed to the code found in Ubiquity 0.1.5. The team particularly wants to thank Yatrik Solanki, Abimanyu Raja, and Stephen Horlander for their work on envisioning and creating the skinning functionality and skins. Thanks also go to Zach Lym for his ongoing work on Ubiquity user testing, and Fernando Takai for his outstanding contributions as a community catalyst.
We are also currently doing an open-process redesign of the Ubiquity logo. Help decide what it should be!
