Gaurav Tiwari plus Firefox

After three hours of code wrangling, we just finished working on the first release build of the Mozilla Firefox add-on for gauravtiwari.org. This add-on is a launcher, cache keeper and web-optimizer, which will help you access MY DIGITAL NOTEBOOK more conveniently. It sports a toolbar button to launch the site in a click. After the installation completes, you will find the button in the toolbar.

 

How to Install the Add-on

Download the add-on:

Download the same from Mozilla Add-ons site.

We are now working on an add-on which will load gauravtiwari.org without internet using aggressive caching. Please, try the add-on and send your feedback using our contact form.

Google Chrome and Opera users can also enjoy our extensions. Those are lightweight, simple and buggy. More details can be found on the app downloads page.

Throughout this, the insecure file transfers may place adware or virus junks in your storage that are not removed even after completely formatting the disk. Once entered, these junks corrupt stored files and ultimately the disk.
