  1. Mozilla+Firefox = Screws over extension developers


    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/07...refox_3_1_ass/


    The company's platform evangelist Mark Finkle said on his blog that
    extension developers, who suffered their fair share of headaches attempting
    to update add-ons when Firefox 3 landed last month, will not experience
    similar problems with the next version of the open source web browser.

    Last month, Firefox extension developers had a good deal to grumble about
    with the latest version because of the architectural, security and large
    UI/theme changes made to the browser, which did a good job of wiping out a
    whole heap of add-ons.

    Typical of the mass confusion running rampant in the OSS/Linux community.
