Facebook Chat Now Embedded in Firefox Browser
Surf sites while chatting using the updated Firefox Beta Browser
Mozilla has launched a new social API feature to their latest version of Firefox Beta Browser. They have partnered with Facebook and have embedded the Facebook Messenger chat box in their web browser.
This new update allows users to surf the web and chat with Facebook friends at the same time, using the same browser. The Facebook chat box will appear in all site the user visits.
Mozilla’s director of Firefox Engineering, Johnathan Nightingale, talks about this latest feature in his recent interview:
