- It looks for references to psukim (Biblical verses) on web pages and replaces them with links to that pasuk (verse) at mechon mamre, a site that has Tanach (Bible) in Hebrew and English, side by side.
- It replaces references to pages of gemara with the relevant page at e-daf, which gives an image of the page.
Note: This will only work in the Firefox Browser. It will not work in Internet Explorer.
Installation Instructions: (see upgrade instructions at the bottom)

The first interesting pasuk is Bereishit 4:10.
Do not forget Job 6:5 or Song of Songs 1:10.
In terms of Talmud, how about Ketubot 13a, Horayos 2b, or Bava Kama daf 5b?
Follow a link or two to ensure that it has worked.
