Mozilla also expanded the Firefox family this year with the birth and launch of the first ever Firefox OS smartphones - devices based entirely on open Web technologies. To date, Mozilla has launched Firefox OS in nine countries and has thousands of apps in its Firefox Marketplace.
Engineers have been working on ways to integrate social sites and services directly into Firefox. Last year, Mozilla launched with Facebook as the first Firefox social integration partner. Soon after that Cliqzm and Mixi were added.
Firefox also shipped Mixed Content Blocker in Firefox to keep users secure, wherever they surf the Web. Firefox includes Click to Play plugins. By allowing users to decide which sites need to use plugins, Firefox will help protect them and keep their browser running smoothly.
Firefox also enables video calls and file-sharing directly in the browser, all without the need for plugins or third-party software with Web Real Time Communications.
Mozilla will also release an updated browser interface and Firefox optimized for Windows 8 tablets soon.
