I'm glad to see that 'extension update UI' is included as a required feature. Am I being too optimistic in hoping that this corresponds to a way to install extensions from within the browser (in a sensible, managed list of useful/quality/recommended/supported extensions), a la JEdit, rather than jumping to a random website with links to lots of extensions that may or may not work with a given browser version, which doesn't display information about which extensions you already have installed, etc.?
