Dear Sir or Madam,

the University of Potsdam is currently conducting research regarding coring of extension functionality on digital platforms in the browser context.

Specifically, we are interested in which effects result to you as a developer from platform coring. Furthermore, which measures and options you have to influence coring activities. The results are of utmost importance for any developer that contributes extensions to digital platforms such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

Platform Coring is defined as the integration of functionalities provided by third-party extensions in the platform core, whereby the core is the browser (platform).
For example, if a new version of a Browser (e.g. Chrome or Firefox) is released with additional functionality (e.g. security features, bookmarking features) which were formerly provided by extensions, this is considered to be platform coring. In a nutshell, functionality formerly (only) provided through extensions is now available in the browser itself.

We recognized that you provide an extension called selenium-xebium-formatter on the Marketplace for Mozilla Firefox. Therefore your thoughts are highly valuable to our study!
