About a month ago I decided to try a new linux distribution. I was using Ubuntu and was even waiting for Ubuntu 12.10. I chose Arch Linux for testing, and Installed it on my netbook.

In this post I want to talk about Jetpack’s limitations and users’ expectations. Jetpack or Add-on SDK is a tool that makes it easy to make a Firefox add-on(a restartless add-on). If you know JavaScript, HTML and CSS, you can make an add-on. But you can’t do anything you want with Jetpack, not yet.
