Outline

It’s now easier than ever for developers with knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, and CSS to make extensions for Firefox, Chrome, & Opera using WebExtensions APIs. During the session, I will demonstrate how to build an extension to add bookmarks using context menus and our own shortcuts (commands). After this session, attendees will be able to create, run, and debug an extension using Commands, Bookmark, Menus, & Notification APIs.
