HOWTO – Build a Firefox extension


Gina at Lifehacker posted a really nice rundown of what goes into making a Firefox extension:

The meat of a Firefox extension is simply Javascript – the not-very-mysterious stuff of bookmarklets and regular old web pages – and a markup language called XUL (pronounced “zool.”) To build your own, you’ll need some Javascript know-how, comfort editing XML files, and a healthy curiosity about bending your favorite web browser to your will.

Check it out, then make something awesome and tell us about it in the comments.
