F1 for Firefox: Easy Sharing Made Possible

Written on November 11, 2010 by B Waldorf

1 person

Mozilla Firefox now comes with a F1 extension which links and shares you stumbled upon on the web to your social networking profiles. You relay the information you found to social media platforms in a single click.

Mozilla’s Messaging team has launched F1 today. This is a Firefox extension that makes sharing content easier.

F1 gives its users an all-in-one frame above the content they are currently viewing. Once the accounts are all connected, users just need to click the F1 icon on the tool bar to share the page with friends from Facebook, Twitter and Gmail. No need to do multiple clicks. This will interlace social accounts into one with the use of a simpler interface.

F1 is also being expanded. Mozilla’s designer Bryan Clark posted today on the company blog:

“[Eventually], the system should know which sharing service you use, and offer to use those! That will require sharing services to advertise to the browser that they offer a sharing API and the browser to see which services you use.

“Furthermore, sharing is not a standardized activity, so some protocol is likely needed for user agents to offer users the service they want without having to know about all of them.”

Publishers have a ll the rights to experiment on this and interested parties can check out the F1 Wikipedia page for details.

Meanwhile, watch the the demo after the skip.

Manage your Gmail with TaskForce

Written on September 16, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Your inbox is a steady stream of incoming information. And most of the times, your inbox can become a clutter basket. Good thing, you can now manager them all with TaskForce.

TaskForce is a little window, living in your Gmail and sorts your tasks, emails and activities to make your work more efficient. It can split your messages into information, action and broadcast directly from its interface or through email. Features like sharing and comments on your tasks can be found in a small location at the top right corner or your Gmail.

How does it work? Just click the “New Task” button and enter your desired information, then all your details will be immediately grouped based on your input. What’s cool about TaskForce is that you don’t need to sign in to Gmail to do that — thanks to its iPhone-optimized site! Other thing that the TaskForce can do is to create a community feed that can clear the broadcast email you receive everyday via filters. You can virtually specify anything that you want to show up in your inbox, then archive the rest in your activity feed. But if you’re not a fan of filtering, you can set them all to be delivered directly to your TaskForce.
