Project News

  • Firefox developer Tim Taubert blogged about an interesting technique for getting Firefox’s native websocket implementation working on IRC Cloud using an SDK-based add-on.
  • Frustrated with debugging geolocation code? Try Louis-Remi Babe’s excellent Geo Devtool addon. This addon is SDK based and allows you to manually set the browser’s current geolocation.
  • Last but not least, have a happy and safe holidays!
