Cross Browser Extension Framework

With the help of our cross browser extension framework, developers can save as much as five times the standard development time.

Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 04, 2014

BestToolBars, a leading browser toolbar and add on development agency, today reveals its next generation cross browser extension framework is proven to save developers both time and money following the conclusion of its latest research project.

In usability studies and in-depth analysis of development lifecycles, BestToolBars were able to isolate two key benefits of cross browser development; the first is the reduction in time needed to develop a plug in and the second, a reduction in the expense incurred to actually create the add-on.

BestToolBars used its own cross browser extension framework as the basis for the study, comparing the timeframes for development of those developers using the tool to create plugins compatible with all of the main browsers with those that did not. The conclusive results showed that the extension framework noticeable simplified and streamlined the development process while also speeding up the life cycle.

Developers using the framework create one lot of code which is compatible across the most popular five browsers. While those not developing with cross-browser compatibility in mind have to write five snippets of code to achieve the same thing.

Valery Kuznetsov, Key Projects Manager at Besttoolbars said, “We know that for those developers who want to develop a cross browser extension which is supported by the main browsers, there is the potential that the task could be a very lengthy project and take a lot of time to complete. However, the expertise poured into the cross browser framework means that development is much quicker. Spending less time on development means a cheaper plug in. Our studies confirmed that with the help of our cross browser extension framework, developers can save as much as five times the standard development time by writing one piece of code that works in all browsers and using common technologies: HTML, JavaScript, and CSS.

“You don't need to write 5 different snippets of code to make any changes. Write just one change and see it rolled out across all browsers all at once. Moreover it will support all future versions of browsers. You don't need to rewrite the code to support new versions. Of course, cross browser development approached in this way means less developer time spent making a plug-in so the cost is smaller with no reduction in the quality of the end product.”
