Is there another freeware addon for Firefox that serves the same function as Google Notebook?
Google stopped working on Notebook a while back, but even though I can still go to it through the web, I miss the addon for Firefox. Is there a suitable replacement? Please make sure it is:
Accessible via web and addon
Still under development
As easy to use as Google Notebook was
I hope this will survive your requirement.
How do Firefox addon developers earn?
I see a lot of free addons for Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/). Some of these are so big and popular. They must have taken a lot of time for development. Full time developers will be required to develop some of those. How do these people keep developing these addons for free? Or how do they earn?
Programmers are an interesting breed…
Accounts don’t go home and get excited about working on their bills. Customer Service Reps don’t look for people to help once they are off the clock.
Programmers go home and write code. It’s strange, I know. There are certainly other professions in which work transcends the office environment, but programming…well, that is one that exemplifies it.
What does that have to do with add-ons? Well, they are mostly open source, so developers will put together a project and get a team of other developers to work on it with them. They do it in their spare time, and they get nothing more than glory and resume power. And that is more than enough.
I don’t know a programmer who doesn’t have at least 5 hobby projects they are either working on, or want to work on. My list is up to 7 projects. When I get home from work, I spend time on those…not a lot of time, but I know some devs who spend nearly every waking hour writing code. Me, I like to spend time outdoors every once in a while as well…guess that’s why my list gets so long, I never get anything done before I find something new to do.
The key is that there is usually several working on one project, so they are able to get it done in a reasonable amount of time, even only working a couple hours a day.
