Firefox is rolling out a new beta introducing a new social API and a preview of the first social integration with Facebook Messenger. Firefox 17 is available for Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Android.



A Firefox sidebar brings Facebook chats and updates to the browser. The feature is to be enabled via Facebook. Other social services like Twitter are to be plugged into Firefox. The idea is to let you manage your social media accounts without logging in.
