Mozilla Firefox, probably the best and fast web browser has released its new version 17. It is now available to download. This is the final and stable version of Mozilla firefox 17. I always recommend to use the stable version. but if you are interested in Beta version you can download and use it. Its about six weeks they have released the new version. This version shows a couple of larger features alongside a handful of small ones. It has added a new Social API.
The social API allows for a persistent social sidebar that gives users direct access to chatting with their social networks while surfing the web. As a partnership between Mozilla and Facebook, the first social feature for Firefox 17.0 is Facebook Messenger. Turning the Facebook Messenger feature on opens up the Facebook chat sidebar on the right side of the browser along with notifications at the top for incoming comments, photo tags, and other notifications – Techradar.
You Need to turn pn this feature by Visiting Facebook Messenger for Firefox page. It will not be autoactivated. Click on the Turn On Green button. You will a get a notification.
Once you’ve turned it on you’ll see a new social sidebar with Facebook chat and updates, like new comments and photo tags. Any new messages or friend requests will trigger notifications and you can reply right from the toolbar. There’s also a new “like” button in the URL bar for sharing websites that haven’t yet added their own “like” buttons – Webmonkey.
