Thanks Jörg, for the detailed answer.

Of course, I would prefer to have the firefox plugin. I did download it-
but as already pointed out by you, it doesn't work with the latest firefox
browser version.

I am interested in getting it up and running. I am trying to get myself
familiarized with the code of the plugin as well as DeepaMehta code base.
Let's see if I can make any headway - will revert back with questions if I
have any.

Thanks and Kind Regards,
