Is Mozilla preparing to ditch Firefox add-ons as we know them?

Posted by Adrian Kingsley-Hughes

One of the features that attract geeks and power users to Firefox is add-ons. these simple browser extensions allow you to customize pretty much everything about the browser, from the page being displayed to the browser itself. Extensions are powerful stuff, but Mozilla is working on a project that could see add-ons as we know them disappear

The project is called Jetpack. According to Mozilla this technology "enables anyone who knows HTML, CSS, and Javascript to create powerful Firefox add-ons." And it seems this idea has legs and could very well be set to change how add-ons are developed.
