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 (github.com/Zegnat/...), 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.
