Firefox plugin for Devanagarik Nepali Script

There are few options for typing in Nepali Unicode (for mac) that I am aware of
1.  First one: Use Google's compose mode with  transliteration. Most of the time, it is easy to use.

2. Then there is Firefox extension: (the weird characters in the link is due to the use of नपल word in the address)

It also comes with the keyboard layout.

Few experiments for ease of use:

If I wanted write:
 ठ्याक्कै  प्रसंसा
I had to press the following in the keyboard with the firefox add on (had to look into the layout) :
Q/yak/kE p/rsMsa

When typed with transliteration on in Gmail:
ठ्याक्कै प्रसंसा
could be written by just typing:
Thyaakkai prasansaa 


Using the firefox addon is not so convenient... :(
tai pani aafnai ghar ko tihun mitho bhane jhai, I will give it a shot. I will try it.

Inspired by:, I installed the Nepali Dictionary by prasansa ( The firefox add on helps to correct the typos.
