DAVE 2: Migrate to Web Extensions and support Chrome
This should happen by November 14 2017 .
Some useful information:
"WebExtensions can only access web content by injecting separate scripts into web pages and communicating with them using a messaging API" (details at ).
At first glance, all the nsI* APIs we use seem to still be available. Note that I am not sure what
kind of add-on DAVE is, among the list of options available: overlay add-ons, bootstrapped add-ons, and SDK add-ons. According to Mozilla's compatibility checker , it's a "XUL or XPCOM add-on", but I don't know for sure how to interpret this, and it seems to determine quite a bit how the porting work will look like.
There are "Office Hours Support for Transitioning and Porting to WebExtensions" ; available options include IRC, a web forum and a mailing list.
- Category set to Installation

The next step is to agree on a calendar and come up with a budget estimate.
That's now #13543.
