LXer: Mozilla straps on its Jetpack

Published at LXer:

Mozilla Labs have launched Jetpack, a new way of creating extensions for browsers. Jetpack builds on HTML, JavaScript and CSS to provide the platform for add-on developers. By switching to web technologies for extensions, the Labs developers hope to make add-on creation accessible to a wider audience of developers. Jetpack Features, as they are called, can be installed and debugged without restarting the browser and can be debugged in the browser using Firebug. Another advantage of the switch to web technologies is that Jetpack Features should be portable to other Mozilla based applications, such as Fennec, Thunderbird and Songbird. It is also possible that other browser developers could add Jetpack compatibility to their browsers.
