BrowserID and Sessions API Firefox Addons

Contained in this project are two addons, one to implement BrowserID as a Firefox addon, the second implementing the still experimental Sessions API.

BrowserID Addon

This is an addon that implements BrowserID as part of the browser chrome instead of opening a popup window to log in.

Code for this is found in addons/browserid

Sessions API Addon

The Sessions API is an experimental API designed to bring session information into the browser chrome. The goal is to train the user to relate their login information with a particular site as well as to look to their URL bar for all of their session related needs. When visiting a supporting site, a small box to the left of the URL bar will allow a user to login, logout, and view their session information.

Where to run

The addon directory.
