+Compatibility
+-------------
This extension is compatible with Firefox 3 and above, on Windows, MacOS and Linux platforms.
-If members of the community want to submit patches, they will be accepted, but we will not
-be performing much (if any) testing on them.

-Several people from the FireGPG community have banded together and are working on two
-new projects. One is a replacement for FireGPG that will apparently initially target
-the Chrome web browser from Google and then be released for Firefox.
-The second is gpgAuth which is available for Chrome. (https://github.com/gpgauth)
