This is something I need explained to me because I honestly haven’t seen it explained well anywhere:
Why the need to “request” extensions at all? Is there not (as is the industry standard) an Open Source API that lets ANY extension developer build an extension around and then submit for review and addition? I mean, Brendan Eich started Brave and we all know he came from Mozilla, the browser that pioneered the idea of browser extensions. Why is this not a thing in Brave?
As it stands right now I’ve seen requests for all of the most popular extensions sitting in the community forum here for MONTHS with nothing to show for it. It would seem that the way Brave is currently handling extensions isn’t working. Maybe it’s time to open up the playground and let everyone in?
Or maybe I have no idea what I am talking about and this is already the case but nobody wants to come and play. Frankly, I don’t know. Can somebody educate me, please?
Thanks for your informative and kind replies.
