In a little more detail...

I maintain a couple of extensions to Thunderbird. Do not hesitate to contact me by email for ideas, bug reports, features, suggestions, patches, etc.

In real life, I'm a computer science student in Paris. I develop add-ons as a leisure, on my spare time. I also wrote a book on XUL in a previous life but due to studies I haven't been able to develop add-ons until recently, which is why I just started to get involved again with Mozilla.

Oh and by the way, I'm French :).

Add-ons I've created

Thunderbird Conversations No Restart

This addon provides a conversation view for Thunderbird, grouping messages together and allowing you to reply "inline" thus providing a more efficient workflow.

The latest version is compatible with Thunderbird 24+ only (see below for details).

Manually sort folders

RSS Dashboard

This addons gives you a dashboard-style view of your RSS feeds, like iGoogle or Netvibes (widget view). This is an experiment, so it is still very rough. Right now, consider this as a proof-of-concept rather than a real addon.

My Reviews

Keyword Search

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm so glad that Firefox has the extension mechanism to compensate for arbitrary random changes in the codebase. This extension is absolutely essential and prevented me from smashing my keyboard several times. Many thanks to the author!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5). 

Browse By Name

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An excellent addon by Ehsan, as usual. And it's restartless!

Jökulsárlón Download Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent, this UI is much more usable than the one found in the standard Download manager. Still a bit rough in the details, but a great addon still :).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

Bugzilla Tweaks

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome! And it's restartless, congrats!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

BarTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent extension! Probably the best way to speed up Firefox startup times. Lifechanging.

Zindus

One of the greatest addons for Thunderbird Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a masterpiece, works flawlessly, and allows me to sync my address book across all of my Thunderbird setups.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.13.3). 

Enigmail

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon works flawlessly. The setup assistant automatically finds the key associated with my identities, the UI tells me about encrypted and decrypted messages automatically, and I don't have to manage all things by myself. This is great, congrats to the Enigmail Team!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
