Mozilla has today announced the launch of its new Facebook Messenger for Firefox which has been built on a new social API for the web.
Once you have enabled the new Facebook Messenger for Firefox you will be able to view a new social sidebar which includes Facebook updates and chat area. Check out the video after the jump to learn more about the new Facebook Messenger for Firefox plug-in.
To start using the new Firefox Facebook Messenger, just upgrade your browser to the latest Firefox release, and then visit the Facebook Messenger for Firefox page, and click “Turn On.”
Facebook Messenger for Firefox has been specifically designed to enable suers to chat with friends and stay connected without ever needing to switch between or open a new tab their Firefox browser. Mozilla explains:
“You can chat with your friends and family while doing anything from shopping online for the perfect gift, cheering your team on in the big game, watching a video or just surfing the Web. Of course, if you’re not feeling social, you can easily hide the sidebar or even disable the feature.”
