Topics for This Week
- Started testing snippets in Nightly yesterday - please report bugs if you see any!
- Beta Hotness
- Firefox Accounts + Sync and Webapps merged to Firefox Beta (Fx29). Huge shout out to AaronMT: Aaron's hard work and infinite patience has been absolutely essential to the Firefox Accounts + Sync effort on Android and Desktop.
- We will start the basic work for Tiles in Fx31. It will be broken into different phases of work, each slated for a different release. For Fx31, we will look at adding default bookmark-like tiles that appear in the empty thumbnails. We'll do some open posts to get the community involved in picking the set of default bookmark/tiles.
- UI Telemetry
- We plan to push UI Telemetry in Fx31 and will create a Hack Week next week to get the current WIP code landed.
- Firefox Hub
- Work continues to get Firefox Hub feature complete for Fx31.
