Mozilla has announced the launch of Facebook Messenger for Firefox which is built on their new Social API for the Web.

To get started, just upgrade to the latest Firefox and then visit the Facebook Messenger for Firefox page and click “Turn On.” You can watch this video to see how it works.

Once you enable the feature, you’ll get a social sidebar with your Facebook chat and updates, like new comments and photo tags. You’ll also get notifications for messages, friend requests and more that you can respond to right from your Firefox toolbar.

Facebook Messenger for Firefox lets you chat with friends and stay connected with their updates wherever you go on the Web, without needing to switch between or open a new tab. You can chat with your friends and family while doing anything from shopping online for the perfect gift, cheering your team on in the big game, watching a video or just surfing the Web. Of course, if you’re not feeling social, you can easily hide the sidebar or even disable the feature.

The company says Facebook integration is just first of its social features for Firefox. Additional features and providers will be added soon.

Oh Firefox, once you were a no nonsense, no bullshit browser with the option to install the plugins of your choice. With this shit you force down everyones throat you are starting to become a piece of bloat-ware shit. You are going away from your core and the main reason people liked Firefox. Keep it up if you want to lose more market to Chrome and IE 10! Are these developers really this stupid?
