On this partly-cloudy day of April, I’ve thrown myself at Wikipedia seeking mercy upon my insatiable need to know more about diverse subjects such as the International Phonetic Alphabet. But, as with any visit to Wikipedia, I ended up reading about even more diverse subjects such as the Mortgage word (from Law French), the Arabic loanword Orange and the Merovingian dynasty.
This was all great to read upon (thanks Wikipedians!). But I’d like an easy way to find my way back to the original piece. I’d like a nice Firefox extension to draw for me the threads of articles I’ve read. Each time I’d open a new tab it would create a new branch from this article. When an article links to an already open tab, it should be identified with a dashed line.
I’ve drawn an example of what it could look like (click for more details):
So please, tell me someone already wrote that piece of software? (It took me quite too long to draw this funny diagram).
NB: An attentive reader will realize that I like reading on History, Languages and History of Languages.
