WebRunner as a Firefox Extension

Cesar has release an alpha release of WebRunner deployed as a Firefox extension and launched using Firefox as the runtime. That’s right, delivered using Firefox’s extension mechanism and launched using Firefox’s runtime. No XULRunner needed for this deployment. It seems to work on Linux, but we need to make some changes for Windows and Mac. Also, check out some of the WebRunner Planning discussion to see what ideas are being kicked around.

As Cesar says, we think this is a possible direction for WebRunner. We could do more. We’re looking for feedback. We are still working on the standalone XULRunner version of WebRunner and should have a new release out soon.

    I know this has been asked before, but I can’t seem to find an answer:

    What is the license for WebRunner?

    Nevermind, I see the version in svn is under the MPL. Thanks!

    Hello. I know this is not the right place where posting my request but I didn’t find any other place. (SORRY).

    I have installed WebRunner on my Mac and now I would like to configure it but I didn’t find any .webapp file and I don’t know (is there some documentation online ???) where I have to put my own .webapp file.

    Please, could you let me know what I have to do in order to set it up ???

    Thank you, I appreciate it
