Firefox Beta adds ‘preliminary support’ for Social API
Firefox is going social, at least in a tentative sort of way.
Mozilla announced today that its Firefox Beta for Windows, Mac, and Linux will support Social API, a framework designed to let developers integrate social-networking features directly into the browser. Mozilla was quick to point out that the Social API support is “preliminary” at this point, suggesting it isn’t fully baked and ready for prime time.
Mozilla didn’t offer many details on how the social features might be integrated into the browser. It did say that it envisions developers allowing the browser’s users to “to keep up with friends and family anywhere you go on the Web without having to open a new Web page or switch between tabs.”
