I’m completely new to add on development, had a read through the basic
principles and the cross browser development using browser extension api.
What I did not get is:
How would the extension communicate to services running in the internet?
Coming from a different field, I know mqtt, zeromq et.al. I guess the
best bet would be around webSockets for browser extensions?
The basic question is:
what would be the recommended approach to communicate with a server
/service from a browser extension api (compatibility for several
browsers) point of view?
A second question is (sorry for the porb. dumb newbie questions): can in
the background run any js code, e.g. any of the web API stuff?
Thank you for your kindness
