On Jetpack

MozillaLabs released Jetpack – a lightweight way of extending the browser. It’s essentially an API that allows you to write extensions for Firefox with web technologies. You can check out the video here:

Mozilla Labs Jetpack – Intro & Tutorial from Aza Raskin on Vimeo.

While you’re at it you should also read the guiding principles.

What I want to do here is list what I want from a lightweight extending system (in no specific order):

My current way of creating Firefox add-ons is to build Greasemonkey user scripts and compiling them to add-ons into a full .xpi. This provides a good framework to add other things that normal Greasemonkey scripts cannot do.

As I checked Jetpack I missed a lot of the things from the list – too many to be able to create a Jetpack version of Tweecious. Since it’s still in 0.1 my hopes are still high.
