Mozilla Firefox Extension Update Screenshots

Sunday April 25th, 2004

Percy Cabello wrote in to tell us that Ben Goodger has posted some screenshots of Mozilla Firefox's forthcoming Extension update feature. While some of this UI is in the latest Firefox nightly builds, none of it really works yet, so don't get too excited.

Update: Another Extension update screenshot is now available.

While the actual update spec pages are there yet, this example looks interesting: <…/extensions/manifest.html> See the <!-- Update Info --> bit - it's got an update URL of somewhere on (not a real link) So joe-spammer wouldn't need to upload his spyware to the update server; he would maintain his own server.

(Ben: there actually seems to be a site at that URL - just that I can't seem to find RSS Bandit on there :p)
