 Your First Firefox Extension

Extend Firefox be a hero, or at least cool.

"Today let's take a look at how one goes about creating these magical extensions. The active ingredient is XUL, a markup language (the eXtensible [or "XML-Based"] User-interface Language, to be precise) that describes things like toolbars, menus, keyboard shortcuts. It's what Firefox uses internally, in fact, to handle its own UI (what the developer types call "chrome"). XUL will provide the interface. JavaScript handles the functionality."
