I think its very cool.  Actually, I'd probably use it quite a bit.
I'm always in FF, and don't like firing up BibleDesktop if I want to
do a quick reference check.  If it can be gotten to work with other
texts as well, I'd probably be even more interested as there are some
other texts that I commonly use.  I'd probably use it quite a bit.
