Hacks 84-90

This chapter describes how to create and deploy Firefox enhancements properly. Enhancements include skins, themes, extensions, and applications. This chapter covers the creation of JAR and XPI files, their contents, and the web site features that are used to deliver them.

Firefox browser windows (and other Firefox windows) can be compared to the command-line environment. Just as a command-line interface can be used to start many different programs, so too can Firefox windows. They are good places from which to launch other applications or enhancements. Such applications can be started through Firefox’s menu system, the keyboard, or the mouse, and they can be trivial or complex. They can be highly integrated with Firefox, like extensions, or they can be mostly separate, like the DOM Inspector.
