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.
“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.”
