New University of Illinois PH Interface

Update 2020: This extension has been archived.

The University used to have an online searchable “phonebook” that was invaluable when students needed to contact each other. The information displayed by default listed name, email, major, address, phone number, web site address, and department (if the student worked for the University). This has all been disabled except for email address in the new PH system. I wrote about this situation on The Quad.

Anyway, a biproduct of the new web interface is that my Firefox extension NetID Lookup was broken for about 7 days. It is now fixed, and you can go to to get the latest version (1.3). Thanks, and please provide feedback if you use and enjoy this simple extension.
