Browser Superpowers - Building the Distributed Web with Extensions
You've built a distributed application platform that will change everything... but where is everyone? Browser extensions can lower the barrier to entry for early-adopters and developers to try your project. Prototyping in the browser is also a great way to experiment with what the future of the web can look like. We’re developing a set of experimental APIs for building dweb applications using the WebExtension framework in Firefox. We’d love to have you try them out, and get your feedback and learn what you need to build dweb apps in browsers. Join us and build your first browser extension, learn about the APIs for building dweb applications, and starting porting your project.
