Technorati Sidebar Released

I've just put up a new addition to the Technorati site - a sidebar forMozilla/Netscape and IE.  When you find an interesting site or blog, simply cut-and-paste the URL into the Technorati sidebar, and get an up-to-date list of blogs that link to that URL. It's like getting instant reviews and commentary on what's going on on the web.

I like going to my favorite news sources, like the New York Times, The Washington Post, Slashdot, etc., and when I find an interesting link, I paste it into the sidebar so that I can see what interesting conversations are going on about the article.  Depending on the article, I get a glimpse into different communities of thought - Articles in the Times about missile defense bring up warbloggers, articles about technology bring out the geeks.  It adds a metalayer to browsing. 

It would be cool to have the sidebar automatically load the watchlist for any URL that I'm browsing on, automatically.  Any Javascript or XUL programmers out there ready to take on that challenge?
