Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
Toolbar development firm, Besttoolbars has announced that its Browser Add-On Framework solution now supports the new Google Chrome extension developments following the launch of the new Chrome 21 last week. The Framework’s early adoption of the new Google Chrome manifest means packaged apps and extensions will automatically be compliant with the latest version of Chrome and the planned phasing out of Manifest 1 items over the course of the next few months.
With the new version launch, developers have been put on strict timetable by the search engine who will not accept any add-on built using the old Manifest Version 1 in to the Chrome Web Store from September of this year. Extensions, add-ons and apps which haven’t been updated to reflect the extension development changes by the first quarter of 2013 face being pulled from the store altogether. With its support for the new Google Chrome manifest now fully functional, Browser Add-on Framework negates this risk by helping developers to make their apps and add-ons fully compliant with Manifest 2 at the click of a button, months before the old version is deprecated.
Announcing the Chrome extension developments, Google said that it fully expects its changes to improve browser security and performance. Although the search engine added that use of Manifest Version 1 has declined since Chrome 18, the decision to phase it out completely leaves millions of add-ons in need of a Manifest 2 overhaul.
The early adoption of Chrome extension developments by Browser Add-On Framework means online businesses and enterprises dependent on their browser add-ons for revenue streams and marketing purposes will not suffer when the Manifest is upgraded.
Andrew Kudrin, CMO of Besttoolbars said, “While Google Chrome becomes a top browser we see increasing amount of requests for chrome extensions development. As the leading service provider Besttoolbars tries to go ahead of the market supporting all future browsers versions in advance securing our clients business."
