Mozilla gets Facebook messenger for its Firefox browser !

If you are the user of the Firefox browser, you can now chat away with your Facebook friends even when you are not actually on the site, thanks to Mozilla developers who have officially announced the Facebook Messenger for the Firefox web browser. The messenger is built on a new social API. According to Mozilla blog. “Once you enable the feature, you will get a social sidebar with your Facebook chats and updates, like new comments and photo tags. You will also get notification for the messages, friend request and more that you can respond to right from your Firefox toolbar.”

The posting elaborated on the new service by stating, “Facebook Messenger for Firefox lets you chat with friends and stay connected with their updates wherever you go on the Web, without needing to switch between or open a new tab.” You can chat with your friends and family while doing anything from shopping online for the perfect gift, cheering your team on in the big game, watching a video or just surfing the Web. Of course, if you are not feeling social then you can easily hide the sidebar or even disable the feature.

To experience this new feature, just upgrade to the latest Firefox Web browser and then visit the Facebook Messenger for firefox page, click here, and click ‘Turn ON’. Recently, Mozilla has added an MSN-customized version in its Firefox based browser. Users can now have Microsoft’s Bing search engine and MSN as their home page.
