Like? New Firefox adds Facebook integration

Mozilla's Social API allows participating social-networking sites to create persistent sidebar access to their sites. But Firefox 17 also drops support for older Macs.

Facebook has accepted a friend request from Firefox and Mozilla's new Social API today, as the browser updates with several security and feature updates after yesterday's Firefox for Android update.

The biggest feature debut in Firefox 17 (download for Windows | Mac | Linux) is the Social API, launching with Facebook Messenger, which allows participating social-networking sites to create persistent sidebar access to their site. Although most new browser technologies depend on entirely on how many developers integrate it, the Social API likely will be different.

Well, lol, I don't use either F.F. OR Facebook but this sounds like a decent idea if you do I guess. Was more interested in the report on win8's "smothering usability" on the sidebar.

No doubt Firefox needs to become a niche browser, don't think it's going to find it in social media. Firefox does make a good "goldilocks" browser for HTML development - (opinion) and you can't go wrong with clean and simple extensions like firebug.

Firebug is buggy in Firefox on my W7 install (and on the TAFE W7 PCs too).

It seems to work properly in Firefox on Ubuntu.
