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.

The main interest of the extension is to propose either page and corpus analysis. A corpus is a group of web pages. Timmy Miner can makes you discover what is the vocabulary used in the corpus, and for instance help creating a folksonomy.

Because of his efficient core, this extension can treat hundreds of thousands words and an important number of pages. Then it is easy to get the vocabulary used by a group of websites or blogs. From these data many things can be done, for instance studying what are the domain of interests of a given community or make a do a survey about a given theme.

Besides, Timmy Miner detect the page language and can build expressions graphs (thesaurus) which represent co-occurrences of expressions into pages of the corpus.
