Hello! I'm Tom. I designed a game called Gunpoint, about rewiring things and punching people, and now I'm working on a new one called Heat Signature, about sneaking aboard randomly generated spaceships. Here's some more info on all the games I've worked on, here's the podcast I do, here are the videos I make on YouTube, here are some of the articles I wrote for PC Gamer, and here are two short stories I wrote for the Machine of Death collections.
But actually, this basically turns Firefox into the Google Browser, a program in which your Google account is your master login for all others, and your personal information is now completely detached from your home PC, and is entirely online and accessible anywhere. I am naive, and much more easily excited than concerned.
Firefox’s Extension window is one of the slickest pieces of programming I’ve ever seen. When you open it, Update buttons appear next to anything that has a new version out, and you can click them all straight away and they’ll all update simultaneously, in seconds, without asking you anything or making you click okay or waiting for each other to finish first or looking things up or conflicting or breaking or failing to find things. Extensions are user-created content; it’s extraordinary to see the host program supporting them so dotingly. Even Steam is years off being this clever.
For another plugin every FF user should have.
