Mozilla developers have added support for add-ons to the codebase of the Firefox Preview mobile browser (Fenix), which is being developed to replace the Firefox edition for the Android platform. The new browser is based on the GeckoView engine and the Mozilla Android Components library set.

The ability to connect add-ons based on the WebExtension API is available for testing in the nightly builds of Firefox Preview. The item "Add-ons Manager" appeared in the menu, which shows the add-ons available for installation. In its current form, only uBlock Origin is present in the list of add-ons compatible with Firefox Preview. Support for other add-ons is expected later.

Kaspersky Lab to Open Kaspresso Source Code

The solution is designed for mobile services testing
21 October 2019   530

Kaspersky Lab has uploaded a tool for self-testing applications on Android on GitHub. The creation involved developers from HeadHunter and Avito. Kaspresso - as the framework is called - has already been tested on Kaspersky Lab’s mobile services.

The framework is based on two autotest libraries: Espresso and Kakao. Kaspresso can be used in AndroidDebugBridge tests - this is when specified commands are executed on the device for debugging. In normal tests through Espresso, there is no ADB support. Kaspresso also logs all actions and can solve problems with flaky tests when the result is unpredictable. It is written in Kotlin.

Kaspersky Lab believes that Kaspresso differs from its competitors in the flexibility of settings and ease of use.
