google chrome add-ons

I was able to install the same add-on in google chrome as in firefox. Do chrome add-ons have to be made especially for chrome, or do all firefox add-ons work in chrome?

"Firefox uses XUL (XML UI Language) and JavaScript to for extensions, however, chrome uses internet standards such as Jason, HTML, CSS and Javascript.

Development process are different, GUIs in both use 2 different technologies, although GUI-control technology is same (JavaScript), at least today there is no Firefox to chrome extension converter. Theoretically the conversion is possible but someone has to develop it, until that day one has to develop 2 separate extensions."
