Migrating to Manifest v3

(Andrey Vyrvich) #1

Chrome team is actively working on major changes proposed for their extension platform: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1nPu6Wy4LWR66EFLeYInl3NzzhHzc-qnk4w4PX-0XMw8/edit#

Should we expect same updates for Firefox?

Hey @avyrvich. We are watching Chrome’s proposals for manifest v3. We do anticipate that we will adopt some of their proposals to maintain compatibility, which we believe will benefit Firefox developers and users. However, we are not committing to implement all aspects of manifest v3, and in fact, we already depart from manifest v2 in several areas where we think it makes sense.

If we do decide to propose changes to our extension framework, we will announce them on the Add-ons Blog.
