Dependency Injection (DI) software design pattern has long been part of native client and server-side applications that use OOP languages. In essence it’s a technique for achieving Inversion of Control (IoC) between classes and their dependencies.

Your app may be greatly designed or have some killer features, nobody will use it if it’s not performant. Users are not patient. But how can one make an app more performant? Well, the less your browser has stuff to do, the faster it will be, right?

11. Restricting Notification Permission Prompts in Firefox

In April we announced our intent to reduce the amount of annoying permission prompts for receiving desktop notifications that our users are seeing on a daily basis. To that effect, we ran a series of studies and experiments around restricting these prompts.

In this blog post I will give a detailed overview of the study results and further outline our plans for the future.
