Firefox Will Soon Support Chrome Extensions CodebaseBut prepare to wait.

In an effort to catch up with its competitors, Mozilla has announced plans to adopt a new extension API, called WebExtensions, which basically means that add-ons created for Google Chrome or Opera web browsers will be compatible with the upcoming Firefox 42 release, with minimal changes required before submitting to the store.

In addition to that, Mozilla will also disable unsigned and unreviewed extensions from running inside the web browser.

Lastly, Electrolysis, a multi process Firefox, which is long overdue is still planned and should be enabled by default in Firefox 43, which is still miles away.

So here you have it, folks. Is anyone excided?
