About FireBreath

ohloh_badge

FireBreath aims to be a cross-platform plugin architecture, targeting:

  • NPAPI browsers on windows, mac, and linux:
    • Gecko/Firefox
    • Google Chrome
    • Apple Safari
    • Opera (usually)
  • ActiveX Control hosts:
    • Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8

FireBreath is licensed under a dual license structure; this means you can choose which of two licenses to use it under. FireBreath can be used under the New BSD license or the GNU Lesser General Public License v2.1.

FireBreath is a framework that allows easy creation of powerful browser plugins. A plugin built on FireBreath works as an NPAPI plugin or as an ActiveX control (windows only) and support could be added for other plugin types built in C++ as well. Read about our project for details, or read below to get started quickly!

 

Note that development on FireBreath 1.x is limited to bug fixes only; the FireBreath 2.0 branch needs a lot of support, so please help out where you can!

Getting Started with FireBreath 1.x

Welcome to all potential new users! Feel free to look around, read about our project, and enjoy a world where creating browser plugins is actually easy.
