Building cross-platform browser add-ons using Web Extension API. Browser Add-ons can extend and modify the functionality of a browser. They help us to personalize the browser as per our need. I will be walking through some of the existing add-ons to outline the potential of add-ons. Participants will learn how easily they can develop a Firefox or Chrome add-on or port Firefox add-on to other browsers(Chrome, Opera, Edge,etc.) by having basic knowledge of JavaScript using WebExtensions API.
