zotero standalone version

From JJ

"An alpha release of standalone Zotero has been announced, part of the larger Zotero Everywhere project. Standalone Zotero Alpha does not require Firefox to run and is available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. Alpha plugins to connect standalone Zotero to the Google Chrome and Safari browsers are already available (a plugin for Internet Explorer is planned).

And I didn't know there was a chrome plugin either !!

To remove

This needs you to create a  registry patch file, then we ran


Which finally removed the damn thing!
