I used it for a couple of personal web apps. I could collect strange
new words when
reading and enter them as a list which gave me red or blue links for
each term so I
could see whether they needed a Wiktionary entry or not. I also had a second
back end which looked up a reverse engineered Spanish dictionary CD rom
with the same API. I was planning to extend it then add all those redlinks to
Wiktionary's requested entries page next time I was online. The other web app
subscribed to a bunch of word-of-the-day RSS feeds and checked all the words
for presence in Wiktionary.
I start to see your reasons. I couldn't figure out why you wanted it on
firefox while online.
I'm interested on knowing more about what did you do with that
dictionary but it may go outside the list scope, so feel free to email
Well XPCOM extensions are platform specific and
I'm a big fan of cross-platform
tools. I could've built a Windows version but no *nix or OS X version
on my little
Eee PC. And the js version was faster at looking up offline Wiktionary
up the online Wiktionary with a slow connection.
I'm pretty sure they could also be written in a platform agnostic way.
