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.

Kickstarter Campaign Launched to Fund EPUBReader for Firefox Epub Web Browser

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?

    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?
