Mozilla F1 sets out to simplify URL sharing

16 Nov 2010

Mozilla has introduced a new Firefox 4 beta add-on for a host of social media websites to make sharing URLs easier.

The add-on to Mozilla’s beta 7 browser, introduced last week, is called F1 and provides fast sharing of URLs with the aid of a navigation button.

The feature will be available to use on Gmail, Twitter, and Facebook accounts and will help browse through different networking sites without the need to switch browsers, according to the company.

The introduction of the F1 comes when RockMelt is aiming to pinch a large portion of the market with its innovative social media/web browser platform.
