Martijn Wrote my first Firefox add-on. I see why so many new ideas get implemented as Chrome extensions first: requiring Python and a whole slew of SDK dependencies to create an add-on is a bit daunting when Chrome just tells you to use JavaScript.

Eric Python? I always assumed they were just JS like Chrome. I know I'm incorrect for thinking it (Python is still excellent) but that does seem dated.

Martijn So, it is a bit weird. All the code you write is JavaScript and JSON (, but the SDK you (have to?) use for actually getting it to run requires Python (developer.mozilla....). Just the fact you have to install an SDK is a big hurdle compared to WebKit based browsers. Even Safari doesn't require extras.
