I have a team and we are planning to work on a product. Its a web application and there are certain tasks which we can not perform on server side, so we are planning to come up with application which will utilize client side CPU. Also it should work across different operating system.
After detailed discussion with the team, we have plans to come up with mozilla firefox plugin. So it can be used across all operating system by simply installing firefox on those machine.
Before we start this I wanted to check with you if firefox plugin / addon / extension can be reverse engineered? Can we do complex work like opening word file and parsing it with firefox plugin? Is firefox plugins opensource?
