This addon is a usefule web tool. It could automatically redirect some urls to new pages according to the specified url rules.

A rule is a simple object, including origin url pattern and target url pattern. If the url is match with orgin url patten, then it will be replace with the target pattern. E.g. orgin pattern is http://www.foo.com/(\d+) and target patter is http://www.bar.com?id=$1, the url http://www.foo.com/1234 will be redirected to http://www.bar.com?id=1234 .

For now, the addon support online rules (a JSON file) and some redirection condition (exclude pattern / http method / resource type ).
