Edit in TextMate functionality in Firefox

Do you like "Edit in TextMate" command you can use in any Cocoa edit window, and write the text in your favourite text editor? (of course, TextMate that is). I like it too, and since I've switched to Firefox (after 1.5 years struggling with Safari and getting finally tired of it being SO slow sometimes!) I missed it a lot. Well, now you can do it, too – just follow the advice here: http://blog.circlesixdesign.com/2007/02/23/textmate-firefox/

 Little tip: there's no need to create any symbolic link, you can simply specify `/usr/local/bin/mate` as your editor, or, if you didn't install `mate` command when installing TextMate (which I highly recommend to do), you can use `/Applications/TextMate.app/Content/MacOS/TextMate` to achieve nearly identical results.
