Why was Live Stream Notifier created?

While developing my first Firefox add-on, I realized, that a more general add-on would be pretty simple. The plan was, to let the user enter the channels he wants notifications for. While developing it, I stumbled across the favorites API of What would make more sense, than displaying notifications for the channels the user follows? Automatically finding out the users name!

What's next for Live Stream Notifier

I am currently rewriting the extension from the ground up. Not only does, which was the initial reason for this add-on not exist anymore, but firefox has changed a lot, too. I hope to have it ready somewhere between the release of Firefox 34 and Q4 2014. It will feature a new channel manager, which ultimately allows me to add other stream providers without much extra code. the additional services will include YouTube, UStream, Hitbox and livestream. If you'd like to see any other live streaming service, just contact me!

Further I am planning to add a mobile view for this add-on, so you can use it in Firefox for Android aswell. This will most likely incude a page in the home "hub" plus the notifications like on the desktop version while firefox is opened.
