DryerFox - Updated for new AIR runtime

I've finally updated my DryerFox hack for the Adobe AIR runtime. The conversion from the alpha version of AIR to the public beta was pretty straightforward.

One-click Install
I've added "Install DryerFox Now" badge in the sidebar, which should provide a one-click install experience, installing the AIR runtime if required, and then installing DryerFox.

I haven't logged too many test hours on the install badge, so please let me know if you have any problems.

Geek links
The source for DryerFox is available here.
The AIR file (the DryerFox executable) is available here, in case the "Install Now" button gives you trouble. You might need need the AIR runtime too, if "Install Now" chokes.

Please come again! Props to Apu!


The 7-11 near my home is one of only 12 stores across North America to be temporarily transformed into a Kwik-E Mart as part of the upcoming Simpsons Movie promotion. I saw the 7-11 under construction the other day, but I haven't been back to see the final product.

Hopefully, it will be close to the this 7-11 in Burbank, CA, which has been profiled on Flickr.
