  • Firefox proceed not accepting to install the Digital Pali Reader because this addon can not be verified. I hope for a solution to this that lasts already for more than one year.

  • Digitalpali works great.

  • Wonderful! The DPR is an excellent tool, very thoughtfully designed and easy to use. Bhante Yuttadhammo is gaining incalculable merit from this project. May he attain Nibbaana soon! I will use DPR to continue studying the Dhamma and Paali language. The program includes all the canonical Paali texts, a search engine, several dictionaries and many helpful summaries of Paali grammar, all in one place. I installed it into Firefox and it works flawlessly. I run Firefox with PortableApps from a portable hard drive. This could just as easily fit on to a USB memory stick. Well done! Congratulations!

  • sadhu, sadhu! very useful
