Manage Amazon S3 Buckets

Yeah, delight!

I was using crappy development scripts to fiddle with S3 buckets on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Creating, listing, deleting buckets and so on was not that straightforward and I found it not well documented… have a growing suspicion that I am just not capable of web-searches…

OK, there is an easy way:

A graphical user interface.

Unfortunately it refused to work with Ubuntu-Firefox, but did work in Windows XP-IE5.

Ok, another tool just found is the S3 manager add-on to Firefox. This finally turned out to be the easiest way to connect to Amazones Web Services and create an online storage (“bucket”), edit or delete them.
