Guest42643 11:04 I am unable fire alert message on user mouse right click event on mac.
My question is that how actually can we handle mouse right click event?
Guest42643 11:04 Is it mandatory to call onMouseDown function from corresponding java script right click event function OR we can directly handle it in Firebreath??
kylehuff 14:04 taxilian: you may or may not be aware, but Opera is now using Chromium as it's base. Overall, plugins should work (or not work, [email protected]#$%@*#$ google) the same as in Chromium/Chrome.

taxilian 14:04 lol
lol
I didn't know that
kylehuff 14:04 Yeah, I guess they decided to use what is freely available and well written (that is "written", not "managed")
I am quite obviously still very spiteful about the whole native-messaging thing.
taxilian 14:04 hehe
hehe
I need to try a native messaging app
kylehuff 14:04 they are pretty simple. It is the delivery and installation that is mindblowingly daft.
It just makes no sense to me to have a native messaging host (which is specific to chrome) installed at the system level. especially not when the guise is "security". there is nothing inherently more secure about having the user install something out of band from the extension. regardless of the installation method, the host still runs with the same rights.
okay, I'm done ranting... (well, not done, just refrained)
taxilian 15:04 hehe
do you have to use it from an extension?
do you have to use it from an extension?
kylehuff 15:04 extension or "app". you *could* use it from other software I guess, but nobody else uses it other than in chromium based browser extensions (that I am aware of)
and not being able to register the native messaging host by the extension/app is severely crippling. (not to mention updating it, etc.)
taxilian 15:04 so it should be possible to put it in an extension and then use it from the page?
kylehuff 15:04 yes, however, you have to "register" the native messaging host in a ridiculous manner. In *nix/OSX, you have to put a JSON file in a lame place (originally, in /opt/etc/, recently in ~/.config/google-chrome or something similar), and in Windows you have to add a registry key (originally in HKLM... yes, HKLM! ?!?!)

once the host is "registered", you can send it messaging using the chrome messaging system.
if you are so inclined, I outlined why out-of-band installation is a bad idea in the bug associated with the topic: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=321628#c26
taxilian 16:04 ouch
yeah, I have starred it
wonder if I could build an installer that would install the extension at the same time; I know it used to be possible, just required user confirmation
kylehuff 16:04 I think they have disabled (or are soon about to) the ability to install extensions outside of the webstore.
taxilian 16:04 how annoying
