Currently, we are accessing background objects directly from the UI which causes all sorts of problems in Safari. We can simplify that by sending messages back and forth between the UI and the extension's background page.

This is part of the options page redesign #1524 so we need to implement any options page interactions with the extension.

What to change

  • Determine options page requirements and design an appropriate interface
  • Implement messaging system for making precise requests and listening to events
  • Aggregate similar messages to avoid sending unnecessarily large amounts of individual smaller messages (e.g. requesting a couple of preferences)
