This is a development wiki and is not representative of the final FUEL API. FUEL (Firefox User Extension Library) is a JavaScript Library designed to help developers build extensions using terminology and interfaces that are familiar to them. It will be usable in Firefox 1.5-3.0. FUEL is about making it easier for extension developers to be productive, by minimizing some of the XPCOM formality and adding some "modern" JavaScript ideas. We want to start with areas that will provide the most benefit. FUEL is Firefox-only for the time being, see bug 380168#c4.
