Mozilla intros new API for Firefox add-ons

Firefox is the good web browser , its performance is very good it is more faster web browser than the other web browser so it is more famous in the market due to which mozilla developers developed some new add ons to the firefox that will really help the computer support users to operate the mozilla firefox with some new advanced features.

In the recent visit in BANGALORE, INDIA: Mozilla foundation, recently announced that it has introduced Jetpack, an API that allows developers to write Firefox add-ons with the use of simple web technologies.

Jetpack would provide developers with a platform that would allow them to create Firefox add-ons, which are easy to code, deploy with the use of already known technologies such as HTML, CSS and Javascript.

An official blog of Mozilla lab stated, "With Jetpack, we're building upon our experience over the last four years empowering a community of more than 8,000 developers to produce more than 12,000 add-ons to imagine and build the next generation of the add-ons platform."

It added that they want to grow their community of of developers by orders of magnitude through making add-on creation much more accessible, and yet more powerful by developing it as an extensible platform for innovation itself.

Jetpack is an open source project and everyone is welcome to participate in its design, development and experimentation.

It would allow new features to be added to the browser without a restart or compatibility issues, resulting in little to no disruption to the online experience.

This release is still highly prototyped and unpolished, Mozilla is planning on entirely revamping things for the next iterations, added the blog.
