FF Extension Architecture
Extension contains Parser object that reads XML configuration file. This file includes information about appearance and behavior.
The same Platform can be used to develop plug-ins for Internet Explorer & Safari.
Our solution provides a various ways to install the extension. The installation is done via .EXE or .XPI file. The installation allows end users to agree with a license terms and choose installation path.
Example: Within corporate network we can use .exe installer option, for distribution on the web .XPI installer option is better.
FF Add-on framework provides various ways for toolbar update. Manual update initiated by user , automatic update with a prompt on completely silent update.
Extension configuration is stored in XML file. This file can be located localy or it can be stored on server. This configuration file can be dynamicaly changed
Example: Extension configuration, behavior and appearance can be dynamically changed by update of XML file on server.
Extension can keep locally any data such as files, registry keys or user data.
Example: End-users can save secure information, such as payment or authentication data and later use it for automatic form-filling.
Extension can communicate with servers or any applications with standard protocols and technologies: HTTP, HTTPS, SOAP, REST, JSON, AJAX.
FF platform allows you to create solutions for integration with any third-party software or API.
The good extensibility of platform makes it possible to create additional extensions for individual solutions like RSS, Twitter, Facebook, statistics and alerting.
Extension can respond on browser events such as mouse clicking, keyboard or web navigation events.
Extension can change default browser behavior with redirecting, customizing search or executing scripts.
FF platform allows you to develop custom extensions that appear like button, side-panel, status bar, toolbar pr layer over existing webpages.
Example: HTML or flash content allows you to dynamically change extension appearance by loading html-page from server.
