Mozilla Integrates A Share Button Directly Into Firefox
[ Technology]

Firefox became a social browser last year when it integrated with Facebook. Since then, Firefox has become home to a number of social networks from all over the world. Now the browser is taking it to the next step with Facebook sharing from any Web site.

Mozilla announced today that the latest update to Firefox will include a social share button. The button will allow you to share whatever Web page you’re currently on with your friends and family on Facebook or Cliqz.

Besides the addition of a share button, Firefox 23 includes a number of new features, additions and upgrades to keep users secure. The major addition is mixed content blocking to prevent eavesdropping on HTTPS pages. The latest version of Mozilla’s browser also includes a simplification of plugin installations and the removal of the “Enable JavaScript” preference checkbox.

As for Firefox Mobile for Android, here’s all the new features you can expect to see in today’s update:

  • New: Smaller tablets will now get the full tablet UI
  • New: Slovak locale added
  • Changed: Improved WebGL rendering performance through asynchronous canvas updates
  • HTML5: New data and time elements
  • Fixed: Startup crash on LG Optimus Black
  • Fixed: Nested frames cannot be scrolled vertically
  • If you want to check out all the new features in Firefox 23, you can download it for desktop here and Android here.
