.@john_nye all the stores I’ve submitted extensions to do manual reviews. Mozilla:
Safari and Opera have fairly basic, boring forms for uploading stuff, and are extremely picky and unclear about exact image sizes for screenshots and icons. There’s also no “review in progress” page, but otherwise acceptable.
Obviously I’ve not been able to actually submit an extension to the Chrome store, but I’d hope that it’s a damned good experience for $5. If they are doing automatic reviews, then the price becomes even more counter-intuitve. If they’ve automated it, surely it’s cheaper and quicker for them?
Anil Dash talks about browsers removing the ability to run arbitrary extensions — personally I am more bothered about websites banning their users for creating those extensions #indieweb #ownyourcontent
Trying out kangoextensions.com for cross-browser extension building. I kinda feel this is something vendors should have figured out already :/
