Press & Public Reactions

Questions and Concerns

  • Will Add-on Builder sim-ship with Add-on SDK 1.0 and Firefox 5? No, it’ll be Beta because it’s one step behind SDK but it will be quite usable. SDK is a component of the Firefox 5 launch. Builder will be there to support it in a solid Beta form.
  • Will Add-on SDK 1.0 support Mobile Firefox? No, that’s a priority for the second half of the year but SDK 1.0 is targeting Firefox 5 Desktop.
