Kickstarter Campaign Launched to Fund EPUBReader for Firefox

The best epub add-ons for Firefox needs your help.

Michael Volz, the developer of the EpubReader Add-On for Firefox, launched a KS campaign last week to raise funds so he could redevelop the extension and keep it online.

As he explained on Kickstarter:

Firefox announced massive changes to the Firefox Add-on interface. The result will be, that EPUBReader won't work any longer in a few months. To avoid this, it's necessary to rewrite EPUBReader almost completely. As EPUBReader is a very complex Add-on, the effort to do this is high.

I'm working as a freelance software developer. So the fundraiser is run to allow me the full-time work on the needed development.

You can back the campaign on Kickstarter.

Volz set a goal of 25,000 euros and has so far raised about 60%.

Will you help him get the rest of the way?

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. He is doing an all-or-nothing Kickstarter and if he doesn’t get all the money he will be paid what did get donated and do nothing. What’s wrong with this picture?
