Firefox Social Integration


The objective of this project is to produce a set of personalized Firefox user experiences through an API that integrates social content from third parties.


The Social API is a new API to make it easier for web browsers to integrate with social media services. Once a social service provider is implemented for Firefox, it becomes possible for the browser to display in-chrome user controls and information related to that service.
