It’s been a great few days for Firefox Add-ons. Last week, we reached a whopping billion downloads of add-ons! This equates to 1.5 million downloads a day and really attests to the power of the amazing community surrounding Firefox. Just before we reached this milestone, we rolled out “Fashion Your Firefox.” Fashion Your Firefox pulls together some of the most popular and broadest appealing add-ons and makes it super easy to tailor Firefox to what you do on the Web.
On the heels of all this goodness, we’re gearing up for Add-on Con which is taking place on Dec. 11th here in Mountain View. The conference aims to bring developers together who are interested in improving their capabilities to produce professional add-ons. I’m hoping it means even more cool add-ons for Firefox (not that I need anymore!).
In addition to sponsoring it, we’ve got a several Mozilla and Firefox talks taking place:
- Business Track:
- 10:20 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. – State of the Mozilla Add-ons Universe with Brian King.
- 11:10 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. – Firefox Add-ons: Unlocking platform opportunity with Bijan Marashi of Xoopit.
- Technical Track:
- 11:10 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. – Add-ons and Mashup Development: How to Leverage 3rd Party APIs Effectively with Mark Finkle.
- Keynote Panel:
- 4:00 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.: Future of the Web Browser with Mike Shaver
We’re looking at hosting an add-on developer open house the night before (Dec. 10) at Mozilla HQ. Stay tuned for more details and hope to see you at Add-on Con.
