Timmy Miner is a free Firefox add-on able to analyze all text content loaded while browsing. With the help of its C++ text-mining engine, it detects language, builds corpus of webpages and display most important keywords and expressions. Data are displayed in a side panel in Firefox browser and are updated each time a page is loaded. Built-in functionalities allow to export data as frequency lists (CSV, TXT) and thesaurus graphs.
