Fastest way to Get Started with EC2 – EC2UI

In this age of speed where Electric Cars go 0 to 60 in 4 seconds, I found the fastest way to get started with Amazon EC2 :

…. With the new Firefox Plugin : EC2UI

Firefox lovers will love it. It takes less than 4 seconds to download and install (unless you are running at stone-age dialup speeds). Yes! its a Firefox plugin for Amazon EC2. Created by one of our ingenious Amazonian developers and the fastest way for anybody who would want to get started with Amazon EC2.

Point your Firefox browser here, Install the Plugin and restart Firefox, Key in your AWS credentials and Start spawning Amazon EC2 Instances.

Ec2ui_3 The plugin currently allows you to Manage AMIs, Manage your Instances, Keypairs, Security Groups and Permissions. View all the available public and private AMIs, launch your AMIs, terminate your instances – all within the powerful Firefox environment.
