Continuing its research into how businesses can get more from the plug in development, BestToolBars has confirmed today the critical nature of a single installer feature in cross browser extension development.
Calling on extensive research conducted over a period of months into business use of cross browser frameworks, BestToolBars has been able to extract the value for each component and concluded that developers looking to generate revenue, save time and money are best served with a single installer feature. This means that any business considering developing a browser extension must place a single installer presence at the head of its list when assessing development processes and options.
Valery Kuznetsov, Key Projects Manager at Besttoolbars said, “We have spent a lot of time studying how cross browser extension frameworks are shortlisted, chosen and used in order to determine which features are absolutely critical and most useful to a project. We have been able to conclude as a result of this research and by studying our own user data and feedback that a single installer feature is vital."
The reason for this is actually very straightforward but often easily overlooked; one of the ways to increase the user pool of any extension is to make the installation process more convenient and more user friendly. The way to achieve this is via a single installer which turns installation into 1-click process. This means there are no barriers to install, making it quick, easy and convenient and therefore measurably more likely that the project will gain the desired number of users.”
Valery Kuznetsov, added: "While you can deploy your add-ons to official browser web stores, we can build a single installer which makes distribution of your add-on even easier. Our research has shown that a single silent installer increases both user take up levels and user engagement with your coupons."
“With a single silent installer, the user runs a single .exe file to install the add-on across all major browser platforms (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera) available on the user's computer. Zero interaction is required by the user.
“Having the silent single installer, you can bundle it with some third party software to distribute the add-on.”
