We shipped v1.13 in March. I must confess it wasn’t the funniest thing to work on. It was mostly about getting many tests ready for Firefox.
Firefox is coming.
As I mentioned in a previous post, we are going to start working on Firefox sooner or later. That would depend on how long it takes me to keep up with Puppeteer every month and how many extra hands I can get on the project to help me out.
I just created the project for v1.14. It seems it’s a small one. So it would help me catch up with some open issues.
I wasn’t able to work on this during March, and I feel terrible, well not that terrible. However, it’s something I really want to work on, but v1.13 took me the entire month.
I wasn’t able to work on this during February: Another issue that is driving me crazy is UnobservedTaskExceptions. Brian Feucht found out that tons of UnobservedTaskExceptions are being logged. Though there are not many user tracking that I think that’s something we do need to work on.
How about Firefox?
I would love to work on the Firefox implementation, but that’s my third priority.
- Keep pace with Puppeteer.
- Work on open issues.
So we are working on new features before fixing bugs? What would Joel say?
Yes and No. I try to answer every issue as soon as possible. However, as this project is a carrot and stick, if we don’t keep pace with Puppeteer, this can become a snowball. So we need to keep a balance there.
It also means that, if you find a bug, I encourage you to help me out as much as you can, and if you are not able to fix your bug, help me with another issue, so you will give me some extra time to work in yours.

I was super happy in February when I found that we’ve got 6 contributors. So in March, we’ve got 5 contributors! that’s awesome! As I mentioned before, the more hands we have in this project, the easier for us to help you out with issues and improvements.
I’m looking forward to getting more feedback. Having real-world feedback helps us a lot. The issues tab in GitHub is open for all of you to share your ideas and thoughts. You can also follow me on Twitter @hardkoded.
Don’t stop coding!
