Extend and Compete

Even as Mozilla fixes and tweaks its own code, the open source purveyor is motivating developers to do the same with their add-ons and extensions. Mozilla just announced the Extend Firefox 3 contest, which rewards developer efforts for creating outstanding add-ons for the forthcoming release of Firefox.

The contest will run through July 4 and emphasizes outstanding UI, innovative approaches and the use of open standards. A new category will recognize the best updated versions of existing add-ons.

You can find out more details at extendfirefox.com.
