Mozilla Labs Jetpack | Exploring new ways to extend and personalize the Web

Picture 1

Peter sent me a link to Mozilla Labs Jetpack, a project to develop a way that makes it easy for people to extend the power of their browsers using Javascript. It strikes me that there is a desire and need for an easy programming extension that provides, as HyperCard did years ago, a way for amateurs to extend their environment with widgets. Widgets, gadgets, and other small utilities have their place, but we need a common ground for them for the paradigm to take off.
