At the present time our original author Matthew McMullen is detained on other pursuits and is not available to rejoin our project for the foreseeable future. His co-author web_surfer is also occupied by his day job and does not have available time for anything except to help us as an adviser. He does not have available time to volunteer to maintain and improve our add-on code.
Our most recent developer Rookie has been unavailable and it is assumed that he too has become occupied by his day job and no longer has available time to maintain and improve our add-on code.
There is one more factor to consider. Firefox has intentions of changing their code which will render IHG inoperable on the Firefox browser either late this year or early next year. That's the bad news. But there is good news too! Pale Moon
, a Firefox browser branch, is fully compatible and Pale Moon has agreed to include IHG in their list of official Pale Moon compatible add-ons and we will appear listed on their add-ons site in the near future. Thanks to Pale Moon we will exist after Firefox abandons us.
So knowing that, you will not be working on an add-on with a limited future. While we have no future at Firefox we have a very promising future at Pale Moon, the browser explicitly designed for people who are not happy with where Firefox and their development are going. Trust me and try Pale Moon! Just to share my first happy happy, Pale Moon has a native 64-bit build that is MUCH FASTER than Firefox. You don't need performance tests, just surf with it and download a few sets using IHG and you'll see right away that 64-bit Pale Moon kicks ass on Firefox!!!
Important: Pale Moon has no plans to abandon the XPCOM and XUL components that we need for our code to function. Removal of those components from Firefox in the near future is why we are destined to become incompatible with Firefox .
So knowing all of the above, knowing that ImageHost Grabber does indeed have a future with a better browser than Firefox, a browser that has eschewed all the new junk Firefox is foisting on us in exchange for a clean browser that is lean and mean, if you want to volunteer for our developer team please PM me and summarize your experience. If I think you can do the job I'll add you to our developer team immediately.
Note that we will benefit from a team so this offer is not restricted to a single developer. We will accept all developers that I think are qualified to contribute code improvements to IHG. PM me if you think you qualify and have the necessary experience. If you are not sure, locate IHG's code on your computer and look at our source code. If you understand what is going on then you qualify to apply.
Looking forward to receiving your PMs!
