According to a recent post on the Mozilla Labs blog, they are working on adding social tools to Firefox — making it easy to share what you’re browsing with a friend. It makes perfect sense. Many web sites have sharing and friend tracking features that add a lot to their appeal. Bookmarking services like Del.icio.us and StumbleUpon already have browser plugin components. But they (obviously) work on the bookmark level, not on individual pictures, video clips, or other chunks of content.
Mozilla’s project, called “The Coop”, aims to add a generalized sharing and friend tracking feature to the web browser. They’re in very early development and are taking suggestions and help with the code. So if this sounds cool to you, jump in!
