Introducing the Promoted Add-ons Pilot | Mozilla Add-ons Blog

Not a huge fan of this. Taking money to evaluate extensions means people or teams with less resources aren't going to be able to reach as many people as before. And putting a caution label on extensions that Mozilla hasn't approved is just as bad. So even when smaller teams get their extension in front of people, Mozilla is going to warn them off. Extensions are the biggest thing Mozilla has going for them in the browser space. Narrowing their usefulness is just going to annoy large parts of their remaining userbase.

I've made more <a href="/tags/accessibility" class="hashtag" title="accessibility tag">#accessibility</a> tweaks. My scroll to top button now defers to the prefers-reduced-motion media query for its scroll behavior. I removed some unnecessary landmark elements and added some where they were missing; that should make screen reader navigation easier.<br><br> <a href="/tags/webdev" class="hashtag" title="webdev tag">#webdev</a>

I made some small tweaks to my site to improve its <a href="/tags/accessibility" class="hashtag" title="accessibility tag">#accessibility</a> . I added a hidden skip link that is the first focusable element on the page and my scroll-to-top button now resets focus to the top of the page. These are small changes that make non-mouse navigation easier but don't change anything for mouse users.<br><br> <a href="/tags/webdev" class="hashtag" title="webdev tag">#webdev</a>

I've never seen much use for async/await since they're wrappers around Promises, but the explanation about passing data though a Promise chain made it click for me.<br><br> <a href="/tags/development" class="hashtag" title="development tag">#development</a> <a href="/tags/webdev" class="hashtag" title="webdev tag">#webdev</a>

Some interesting topics at the <a href="/tags/ChromeDevSummit" class="hashtag" title="ChromeDevSummit tag">#ChromeDevSummit</a> 2018. Portals sounds like an interesting concept. Animating page transitions is definitely something that could make <a href="/tags/webapps" class="hashtag" title="webapps tag">#webapps</a> even cooler.<br><br> <a href="/tags/webdev" class="hashtag" title="webdev tag">#webdev</a>
