Hello ppl! I'm new here, so I want to wish you all goodluck in your biz!
So, I've gotta question:

Firefox PageRank determination...
How it can be possible?
Why all wellknown scripts can't determine PR0 and nonindexed pages, but Firefox GoogleBar get it easy?

Or did I miss something?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld BCooL.

It could be because the PR number in itself is for entertainment purpose only. Google reps have said as much several times.

Thank you Bill.

BTW do you know if I wish to write PHP script to determine excact figure of my website PR or even is it indexed at all, what should I use? G API?

The true PR of a site is part of Google's secret sauce. They don't let you know what that is. Toolbar PR is notoriously inaccurate even when it is updated, which is seldom.

There's got to be something in the API as a number of FF tools display PR. You might want to check over in the Google Toolbar, Desktop Search, and Search API Topics [webmasterworld.com] forum. They've got the experts over there.
