Crossrider API - Power and Flexibility

Technology is evolving at an increasingly rapid rate, making it essential for technical gurus to keep their skills and knowledge up to date. Browser extension developers are faced with regular updates to all the popular browsers. This makes continuous development and modifications to browser extensions a cumbersome reality. Crossrider provides a solution to this problem with a development framework which is compatible with all browsers, regularly updated and also provides options for monetization. The Crossrider API is feature rich and includes solutions for cross-domain requests and browser buttons. Extensions created with Crossrider work with Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari and are automatically updated with every new release. The updates are done over an SSL connection, making it 100% safe. The Crossrider framework is available to developers across the world at no cost.


How to Start

To begin using the powerful Crossrider API, the developer simply registers at the Crossrider website. Signing up gives developers immediate access to a library of useful documents, screencasts and plugins. With everything at hand, the next steps are to start creating the extension with JavaScript and then incorporating it into the framework - ready for release. Once the extension is ready for deployment, Crossrider further helps developers with flexible options for download links or customizable and hosted installation areas. Crossrider also provides comprehensive analytical tools that track extension installations, in-app events and DAUs. Having statistical information at hand strongly impacts the quality of decisions made for future extension developments.
