future of flashgot

Post by deningrad » Sun Feb 26, 2017 5:52 pm


I hope to not be OT.

As everybody should know the future of Firefox seems to be Webextentions.

My simple question is, for the developers and/or who is informed, will flashgot (essential for me) be compatible? is there in plan any compatibility workaround?

Please reassure me :(

Thank you

Moving to FlashGot General.

Giorgio, the developer of FlashGot, is also one of the WebExtensions devs. See for example this blog entry - https://hackademix.net/2016/03/09/webre ... ere-going/
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
