Software Engineering Radio, Episode 552: Matt Frisbie on Browser Extensions
Matt Frisbie, author of Building Browser Extensions, speaks with host Kanchan Shringi about the world of browser extensions.
As soon as your head popped off the pillow this morning, you surely thought to yourself “What I really want to do today is listen to a podcast about building browser extensions.”
Then you are in luck! I joined host Kanchan Shringi on the Software Engineering Radio podcast to discuss all things browser extensions: ecosystem, architecture, security, privacy, and the road ahead.
We chatted about key areas where they’ve been successful, popular tools for building extensions, cross-browser compatibilities to keep in mind when developing extensions, mechanisms in the browser to prevent security vulnerabilities, and how emerging platforms can help developers take advantage of exciting new possibilities.
