    excellent work ...
    after you release it, let me know ..

  4. To enable and disable EasyTamil quickly
    you can add a short cut button.

    Right click on the menu-bar (at the free space next to Help menu)
    then select "Customize.." you will get a dialog box with lot of buttons, fine the EasyTamil icon drag and drop that anywhere you feel comfortable (recommended place is just after the address-bar).
    That's it your ready to go.

  6. Dear suhothayan,

    Thanks for developing this extension. In fact while searching for a firefox extension I found this useful for my purpose. I developed web app which will in an intranet application and I cant use google transliteration bookmarklet tool.

    anyway, if there is a startcut key to enable/disable tamil typewriting it would be very useful to the data entry operators. Is there any such fecility avaliable there.



  7. The shortcut key for enabling/disabling Tamil typewriting is 'ctrl'+'alt'+'d'

    For more help on typing,
    right click on the EasyTamil logo at the browser's statusbar and then click on "Some tips...".

  8. From the EasyTamil v1.3

    The shortcut key for enabling/disabling Tamil typewriting is 'ctrl'+'shift'+'c'

    This change was made in order to enable cross platform compatibility
