Boldly Going Where No Smiley Has Gone Before
Smiley Xtra started off after a chance comment complaining about the lack of smilies available on a forum. It was originally a stand-alone windows application, but as of version 3 it became a Firefox extension. Version 4 added lots of new features to Smiley Xtra and lasted for over 2 years before being replaced by Smiley Xtra 5. During that period, it received over 200,000 downloads and was translated into 10 different languages.
Smiley Xtra 5 has been in development on and off for 18 months, and during that time has gone through a number of rethinks and redesigns. The final product is the culmination of all those redesigns, and is hopefully one that artists and users alike will find an improvement over Smiley Xtra 4.

There are a few people that also deserve thanks for their work to make Smiley Xtra a reality. Firstly, credit is due to Mark James for his Silk Icons set, a selection of which can be found in the menus of Smiley Xtra.
And of course, a very special thanks to all the staff and artists over at deviantART, whose work has made Smiley Xtra 5 possible. Where would we be without them?
