I suggest you ...

the Diigo extension should present its toolbar **automatically** for pages that are public

= Suggestion =

The extension should either:

a) present the toolbar in only the foreground tab/window

or

b) present the toolbar in nearly all† tabs/windows.

Whichever one (a) or (b) is preferred by the user, the extension should try to present the toolbar at all times. In other words, do not require a click or macro before the toolbar presents.

= Detail =

== Security ==

There should be a preference to **not** load automatically for any URL with content that is wholly or partly secured (i.e. https) or non-public. This preference should be **enabled by default**.

== Compatibility ==

There should probably be a server-side greylist of URLs/paths that may not work with the feature sets of Diigolets.

So: the extension should allow the user to notify Diigo, with ease, of any URL that is problematic with Diigolet.

= Background =

Version 1.0 of the extension seems to simply present version 4.0b350 of Diigolet.

The requirement to first move the cursor, then click in the toolbar, is actually slower than using Diigolet in the traditional way. (With Diigolet on Mac OS X in the bookmarks bar anywhere from first to ninth position, keying command — plus the number of the position — presents the toolbar with a single action.)

= Footnotes =

† Not all. We can not expect compatibility with all sites.

    Your subject is good, but your followup comments are confusing and probably why nobody votes for this, even though its one of the most overall requested features.

    == useKit ==

    The useKit extension for Safari http://usekit.com/default/index/safari-extension does a tidy job of presenting a toolbar in nearly all windows and tabs.

    For security: it defaults to not working with HTTPS, and allows the user to change that preference.

    I don't like the presentation of useKit at the foot of the window. It's more useful to have such things either at the head (as Diigolets now do) or in a sidebar (see http://groups.diigo.com/group/Diigo_HQ/content/958056 and other topics in the original Diigo Community group forum).

    === Focus ===

    I don't view useKit as an alternative to Diigo, or vice versa. I'm most focused on the ability of the useKit extension to present a toolbar automatically.
