Nyxt Webextensions

Independent implementation of WebExtensions

Nyxt is a web browser that seeks to empower knowledge workers with access to better browsing tools. The Internet is the single largest corpus of human knowledge available. Effective tools to navigate, browse, and index it are important for research/work/empowerment. Nyxt provides these tools. A different take on the "browser", Nyxt is a power-browser, designed from the ground-up for work.

What was until now missing from Nyxt, and from other third party browsers, is support for common WebExtensions (such as NoScript, ad blockers, etc). In this project we'll extend Nyxt's capabilities to support WebExtensions which will allow users to customise their browsing experience and better protect themselves from abuse. Additionally, our work will pave the way for other libre WebKitGTK+ to support WebExtensions, and thus, increase adoption.
