Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 18, 2014
BestToolBars has announced that its cross browser extension framework can now be used by developers who wish to white label their addons across all four of the major browsers.
The impetuous for this exciting new feature has been the changes announced by Google to Chrome Webstore. Under tough new requirements which will come into force next month, it will become compulsory for extensions to be approved and available in the web store to be made available to users. Only those extensions passing the Chrome Webstore checks will be valid for use. With these new guidelines, many developers are expected to run into problems with the distribution of their branded extension.
Valery Kuznetsov, Key Projects Manager at Besttoolbars said, “The process of multi-branded extension publishing has become more complex and time consuming because approval is now required for each of the browsers. The way to solve this issue is to white label the extension through web branding. With the BestToolBars cross browser extension framework, it is possible to white label the extensions for all four browsers. This then acts as one installer which can white label all four browser extensions at once, significantly streamlining the distribution and approval process.”
With this Web Branded approach, each partner acquires a unique ID number. After installation in the Chrome Webstore the extension uses the ID to address the branded interface. Therefore instead of several branded extensions, an “all-in-one” white labelled extension is obtained.
Valery Kuznetsov added, “The benefits of this functionality within our cross browser extension framework are obvious. First of all and perhaps most importantly for the developer, there is no longer a need to go through the long approval process demanded by Chrome Webstore with numerous extensions. This means that labour costs for development as well as testing and support are lessened. Because the extension framework acts as a single installer and means changes are easily made across multiple browsers simultaneously, new solutions can be implemented faster and much easier than would otherwise be the case.”
The cross browser extension framework by BestToolBars allows developers to create extensions for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera.
