Firefox Beta Introduces Preliminary Support for Social API

Quote:
Firefox Beta for Windows, Mac and Linux introduces preliminary support for the new Social API, with a set of social features developed by Mozilla. The Social API is the result of a lot of research and experimentation with integrating social functionality into Firefox.

Much like the OpenSearch standard, the Social API enables developers to integrate social services into the browser in a way that is meaningful and helpful to users. As services integrate with Firefox via the Social API sidebar, it will be easy for you 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. You can stay connected to your favorite social network even while you are surfing the Web, watching a video or playing a game.

We will begin testing the Social API soon and Firefox Beta testers will be the first to experiment with this new feature in the coming weeks. As part of this testing we are working with Facebook to test Facebook Messenger with the Social API.

The Social API will ultimately support multiple providers and has endless potential for integrating social networks, e-mail, finance, news and other applications into your Firefox experience. If you would like to learn more about the Social API, information is available here.

Beta testing of Social API will begin soon stay tuned!
