Geek of the Week: Kutano

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Ever wonder what people are saying on Twitter about a given Web page?

      Now Kutano, a browser add-on developed in Burnaby, shows what you’ve been missing by displaying the tweets that link to the Web page or site you’re viewing.

      After creating a Kutano account, you can also use this extension—available for Firefox and Internet Explorer—as a Twitter client.

      In addition to the usual features, it records when Twitter users follow and unfollow you.

      According to Kutano Corporation CEO Kevin Ishiguro, users have created about 2,000 accounts with Kutano, which launched in March and added Twitter functions to its original on-line commenting features on August 24.

      “We’re the only app to put Twitter in context,” Ishiguro told the Straight.
