About & Installation


xHermes is a good old Hermes wrapped up with XUL
After starting xHermes you're exposed to its floating window where different services can be used to:

Floating window still crashes Mozilla, use it only if you really miss watching Talkback window (Bugzilla 160058).
In the mean time I'd recommend using Sidebar version (go to File > Add xHermes to Sidebar in xHermes window) which should be pretty safe.

See xChangelog for what's changed section. There are also some (old) screenshots of xHermes in action.

Install latest release (Hermes 0.3-pre3).


Current release:

Previous releases:

  1. Hermes 0.3-pre2 completed on July 10, 2002. -Install-

    See Beta's Changelog file to list all changes made since last version.

    After you run xHermes you're exposed to its floating window where you can use different services:

    • log in to your mail accounts (20 servers) - Beer.com was added thanks to Dirty Dingus dirtydingus (at) beer.com,
    • send text messages (SMS) to cell phones or pagers (6 networks) - we are again missing one Polish network,
    • or check your bank accounts (3 banks).
    Because of Bug 1699 you'll soon see lovely TalkBack window when using floating window version. Please please be sure to check the source and send us your suggestions ;). Floating window crashes Mozilla a lot, namely after every 5th - 8th use of any service file.
    In the mean time I'd recommend using Sidebar version (menu File > Add xHermes to Sidebar in xHermes window) which doesn't crash Mozilla.
