I was part of this year’s Add-on Con event, presenting some information on building add-ons for Firefox Mobile. Learning how to work in multiple processes can be tricky at first, but once you get used to working with messages, it gets easier. The information was also relevant for Firefox Desktop, since multiple processes will show up there in a future release. Felipe Gomes is working very hard on getting that project jump started.
In addition to the presentation, I made some video tutorials on building Firefox Mobile add-ons, including a multi-process add-on. Fellow Mozillian, Sara Yap, encouraged me to add some code to the page to allow subtitling. I am excited to see how that works out.
Mozilla is currently running a contest for mobile add-ons – The Firefox Mobile Add-ons Cup. Get your add-on entered as soon as possible. Join Mozilla IRC (#mobile or #mobileaddons) if you have questions about building your add-on.
Firefox Mobile keeps getting better and better. I recently acquired a Samsung Galaxy Tab and I have to say, Firefox is awesome on the Tab.
