I’m Nick Nguyen, the Add-ons Lead at Mozilla. The add-ons team has been working closely with Labs on how extension development could be better and we’re approaching this problem from multiple angles, in terms of both improving the experience of the existing platform as well as nurturing new extension developers.
In the spirit of welcoming new developers to our ranks, consider this question: if you’re a potential extension developer but for whatever reason haven’t gotten around to creating the Next Great Extension, we’d like to know what we can do to help.
Check out the survey we’ve created and let us know what you like and don’t like about those platforms. We’ll use this feedback to guide our thinking around how we can make development easier, more fun, and more rewarding.
In true Mozilla fashion, we’ll share our findings with you here on the Labs blog, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts.
