The TYPO3 Workbench Plugin is an Firefox addon that helps you to manage your TYPO3 Projects and offers you often needed information in the development process.
The start of this Firefox addon development was based on our laziness. Being a web development company with focus on TYPO3 we also offer support to our customers. By the time we completed more than 300 internet- and intranet projects we were tired of typing /typo3 to reach the backend of the content management system.
At that time we decided to develop a simple functionality for us and our customers to open the TYPO3 backend without the need for typing in /typo3.
This was the start of our first addon "TYPO3 Backend" for Firefox at January, 29 2007.
Very early we had the idea to add more convenience to the everyday work with TYPO3 and Firefox. So we added some desired modules and called it "TYPO3 Workbench".
