Today, we begin testing new Social API providers Cliqz, msnNOW and Mixi in Firefox Beta. Weibo will be available for testing to users in China soon.
The Social API enables providers to offer features like a social sidebar, toolbar notification buttons and the ability to easily chat with your friends.
As more and more services integrate with Firefox via the Social API sidebar, it will be easy for you to keep up with friends, family, news, and events no matter where you are on the Web. For example, you can stay connected to your favorite social site or service even while you are surfing the Web, watching a video or playing a game.
To test Cliqz, upgrade to the latest Firefox Beta and then visit the Cliqz activation page and click “Install.”
To test msnNOW, upgrade to the latest Firefox Beta and then visit the msnNOW activation page and click “Turn On.”
Firefox beta users in Japan will be able to activate Mixi through their existing Mixi accounts.
We need help from our Beta testers to test the new providers before we get ready to release them to all Firefox users. To provide feedback, click “help” and then “submit feedback.”
