Mozilla Labs has announced a new development contest, this time focused on Jetpack, the cool new Firefox extension that adds a whole new API and framework for developers to add new features to Firefox, but unlike extensions, it doesn’t require a Firefox restart to apply them.
The contest runs until October 15, so you have time to download Jetpack, learn the apparently easy API, think about something great, and win an ASUS Eee PC 1000HE Black netbook. The runner up gets a prize package comprising of stickers and t-shirt.
