Firefox vs Chrome App API’s How do the API’s compare?

When porting a chrome packaged app to a firefox packaged app you will need to do an inventory as to which chrome specific api’s you are using and create a level of abstraction around them, as the naming / capabilities of the api’s vary across the platforms.
David Clarke did the great leg work breaking down the current differences between the Chrome App and Firefox OS APIs. This is a great resource for anyone building web apps today!

Check it out today. I'd love to see this kept up to date somewhere.

I write here about programming, how to program better, things I think are neat and are related to programming. I might write other things at my personal website.

I am happily employed by the excellent Caktus Group, located in beautiful and friendly Carrboro, NC, where I work with Python, Django, and Javascript.
