The Tabulator Extension is an extension for Firefox that provides a human-readable interface for linked data. It is based on the Tabulator, a web-based interface for browsing RDF. Using Tabulator’s outline mode, query views, and back-end code, the Tabulator Extension integrates the browsing of linked data directly into the Firefox browser, making for a more natural and seamless experience when browsing linked data on the Web.

A primary goal of the Tabulator Extension is to explore how linked data could be displayed in the next generation of Web browsers. The Tabulator aims to make linked data human-readable by taking a document and picking out the actual things that the document describes. The properties of these things are the displayed in a table, and then the links in that table can be followed to load more data about other things in other documents.

A link to the latest version of the extension can be found on the Tabulator Extension site: The Tabulator Extension. Moreover, Tabulator is now hosted on addons.mozilla.org. If you download and install from there, it will provide automatic updates through the Firefox Addon Manager.

 

Once the extension file is downloaded, it should automatically install. After restarting Firefox, all documents served as application/rdf+xml and text/n3 (and for a while legacy documents served as text/rdf+n3) will be automatically loaded in the Tabulator’s outline view. It may be necessary to disable other RDF-related extensions that could override the Tabulator’s capture of these documents.
