whitequarkthat being said, it seems like a firefox add-on has an officially sanctioned way to invoke native code via js-ctypes: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/js-ctypes00:41

whitequarkso it would seem that on chrome you would use chrome.usb, and on firefox you would use js-ctypes, both from a browser extension00:41
whitequarkand you could probably even get away with not shipping a binary for firefox, given that you only need HID functions, and not something fancy like libusb00:42
dos1firefox is going to adapt chrome api for extentions00:45
whitequarkthey are?00:46
wpwraksomeone really ought to make a proof of concept implementation of this kind of communication channel02:40
