    Shouldn’t XUL- based addons or sdk addons requiring access to the chrome layer be excluded from featured nominations from now on?

    I understand these legacy technologies are insecure, which makes me uneasy using these addons. From now on, focus should be only on competitive new addons running in all Chrome, Edge and Firefox alike. Pushing ahead, Mozilla would be smart fully embrace the future and only recommend chrome-less sdk or webextensions code.

      All add-ons on AMO are code-reviewed and should be safe to use. We certainly want add-on developers to move to the newer APIs sooner rather than later, but that doesn’t necessarily mean their add-ons are currently insecure or deprecated.

        Hi jorge,

        I am an add-on developer, and want to implement the newer APIs as soon as possible. But https://wiki.mozilla.org/WebExtensions mentions about the list o APIs Mozilla like to support in future. Our add-on is fully on c++ and need native calls. Could you please let me know by when can we expect Mozilla to implement NativeMessaging? Or any other way to support the same.

        Thanks,
        Paramita

          You can voice your support for certain APIs in the uservoice platform. For now you can use JS ctypes, but not in WebExtensions.
