Calling all Developers – Integrate your App into Firefox Beta with the Social API

Developers interested in integrating their website or service into the Firefox Social API are now able to do so.

New in Firefox Beta:

  • Share: Firefox Beta adds a “Share” button and panel to the Social API. This feature enables developers to let users share content with friends in one click. Facebook users can use this functionality to share content (like news articles, images, videos or links) with their friends and family directly from the Firefox toolbar.
  • Mixed Content Blocker: The Mixed Content Blocker protects the integrity of secure (HTTPS) website by blocking nonsecure (HTTP) content from loading and hence prevents attackers from being able to read or modify the secure page.
  • Network Monitor: For developers, the Network Monitor breaks down individual website components, highlighting how long it takes for the components to load to help you pinpoint problems.
  • Optimizations for Firefox on Mac OSX 10.7: Firefox Beta supports bounce behavior when reaching the top and bottom of pages and support for the new scrollbar style for Mac OSX 10.7 users.

Finally, with Firefox Beta, we are happy to introduce a fresh, redesigned Firefox logo. The new logo has a modern feel and has been created specifically with mobile in mind – optimized to be crisper and cleaner on small screens and lower resolution devices. The new logo will be rolled out more widely in the coming weeks. More information on the new logo and the Firefox logo evolution can be found in this post from our awesome creative team.
