I am a mathematician and computer scientist in Southampton, UK.
I created the little Firefox extension “Open link in...”; but my interest in Firefox mainly stems from wishing to use and promote a browser that puts the user in control. That's why I recommend the extensions NoScript and Permit Cookies so highly!

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desart… near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lips, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, & the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, this legend clear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings,
Look on my Works ye Mighty, & despair!
Nothing remains beside. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.” </td> </tr>

Percy Bysshe Shelley

This version of the text (showing slight variants against
modern editions) is taken from an autograph fair copy
from one of Shelley’s notebooks in the Bodleian Library,
Oxford, UK.
