We want you to build for us browser extension.
We cannot include all details here because of the sensitivity of the project, but we've tried to describe the task as fully as possible without including them. If you are interested and serious candidate, when we'll see this we'll be glad to communicate remaining details directly on PM.
Platform: must work on Windows (XP, 7, 8);linux Browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer.
There're several already working and used public sites. Part of them provide APIs to integrate some of their functionality into different web-applications, other - don't. We need to create browser extension that will allow to use this functionality without need to go to different tab/window. Extension will have two modes. First one - limited mode - will provide minimal core functionality of each site in the sidebar of the browser. Second - full mode - will provide FULL functionality of each site in the overlay window, which folds out from the sidebar (when user clicks respective control), partially covering the original contents of the browser window. User can "hide" full view to get back to limited mode. When extension is in full mode, sidebar will display advertisements instead of the limited functionality of selected site. There will be horizontal menu - set of icons of integrated sites - to switch between these sites.
In addition to this core functionality of extension, there will be another important function: password manager. This password manager needs to work for integrated sites and for any other sites too. Extension will have following buttons:
"log me in to (all) my sites",
"log me out from everything",
"add this site" (adds site currently opened in current window/tab to "my sites")
in settings there's checkbox "log me in to my sites automatically when I log in"
Password manager must allow user to quickly log in to all his "my sites" when he is logged in to his account of our plugin, no matter what computer he uses, as long as our extension is installed in the browser. This way he can quickly log in to all his sistes on office computer, without taking risk of allowing browsers to remember his passwords on office pc. You need to warranty necessary security of handling/storing all user passwords.
We are looking forward to your proposals, suggestions, questions and ideas.
Thanks and good luck.
