Firefox Extensions

User Scripts (for Greasemonkey)

The Free Dictionary 2 Wikipedia
This script for the website The Free Dictionary adds direct links to Wikipédia.
Copernic Redirect Remover
Removes the redirects in the meta search engine Copernic. Visited links can thus be displayed in a different color, and they are faster when the server is slow.
Yahoo! Redirect Remover
Removes the redirects in the Yahoo! search engine. Visited links can thus be displayed in a different color, and they are faster when the server is slow. As Yahoo! stopped using redirects, this script isn't useful anymore.

Besides my personal website, I have been administrator since 2004 of Geckozone : Liberté d'extension, which provides translations and lists of translated extensions for Mozilla products.

I contributed to its development together with Thomas and Thomas, doing the (CSS) stylesheet and part of the PHP coding. I also translated several extensions provided on that website.

Les talents méconnus de Tolkien

Screenshot of “les talents méconnus de Tolkien”

On the french website Les talents méconnus de Tolkien, developed between 2002 and 2003 (still online), I present picture and voice recordings of J.R.R. Tolkien.

It was my first website. I discovered PHP and programming, and finally web standards (thanks to the Geckozone community).
