Mozilla launches Social Bookmarks feature for Firefox Social API

PanARMENIAN.Net - Hours after hiring Javascript creator Brendan Eich as its new chief executive, Mozilla has launched a new feature for the Firefox Social API: Social Bookmarks, according to VentureBeat.

The new feature, debuting with launch partners like Pocket, extends Mozilla’s existing Social API. Social Bookmarks work just like the Firefox favorite button, with an immediate save-on-click function, and a drop-down with additional, optional steps.

This release marks an important step for Mozilla’s Social API, which was criticized in the past for its limitations, including the inability to support more than one social network at a time. Social Bookmarks will potentially help the browser company recruit social media services to build new, more consistent extensions for Firefox, VentureBeat says.
