Mozilla is finally making it official. Without an word from Mozilla about the beta version of its Firefox Facebook integration feature which we covered last week, the company is now announcing that Facebook Messenger For Firefox is officially available for its users. Built on a new social API for the web, Facebook Messenger for Firefox lets users chat with their friends while keeping them connected with the latest updates wherever they are on the Web, without having to open a new window or tab.
To use Facebook Messenger For Firefox, you will need to get the latest Firefox version. Then, head over to the Facebook Messenger for Firefox page and click the “Turn On” button. Once the feature is enabled, users can now view the nifty Facebook social sidebar on the right side of every page on the browser. Users can also receive notifications for messages and friend requests right from the Firefox toolbar. Mozilla says that the Facebook integration is just the start of making Firefox more social. “We’ll soon add support for more features and multiple providers,” it said.
