Reseller Extension For Chrome Is Irrelevant in Firefox

When I first used Revseller, I used it in Firefox. As a web developer, I am somewhat comfortable with using extensions in the browser (though I do not have a lot of experience with them), so I was really impressed with what this extension offered.

When I went to write a review of the extension, however, I realized that I didn't like it nearly as much as I thought I would. In this article, I will explain why.

I don't know if you've noticed, but Google Autocomplete returns a lot of different search terms, and many of them aren't listed on the search results page. Most websites that use the autocomplete feature of Google don't list this information anywhere, because they don't want to annoy their customers. To some extent, I agree.

To some extent, I think that Revseller should have done the same thing, although most of its functionality is actually built into the Chrome browser. For example, in Firefox, clicking on a suggestion brings up a contextual menu, where you can choose whether to select the suggestion from the suggestions or accept it without modifying it. In Reseller, on the other hand, clicking on the extension icon brings up a dialogue box instead of a contextual menu.

This means that, when you edit a suggestion in Reseller, you have to replace it with an updated version of the JavaScript file. It's a little inconvenient, but is by no means impossible. The problem with the extension is that, at the time I downloaded it, the extension did not have a version for Chrome, and the instructions for installing it were difficult to understand. Since the instructions were confusing, I ended up installing it the wrong way: in Firefox.

When I installed the Chrome extension, it seemed to work fine, but when I installed it in Firefox, it began to crash all the time. Eventually, I had to create a new profile in Firefox and then reinstall it in order to get it to work properly again.

The Chrome extension seems like a nice idea, but it is a flawed design choice for an extension to be designed for only one browser. For example, it makes it difficult to write extensions that don't necessarily have to be compatible with Firefox or Chrome, and can potentially cause irreparable damage to your computer. The Reseller extension itself also makes it difficult to update it for future versions of Chrome or Firefox.
