In a little more detail...

Since 2004, I've been writing Firefox extensions as hobby projects to solve feature gaps or problems that I've had with the browser, and I hope to continue doing so in my spare time for the foreseeable future.

Professionally, I'm a Lead Developer working for Fivium in London, using Oracle SQL, PL/SQL, XML and web-tier technologies.

Add-ons I've created
