Social API gains simultaneous notifications

Mozilla has released Firefox 27, an update to its browser for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android. The desktop apps have been given an updated Social API, allowing for multiple notifications at the same time. Until today, Firefox would only show notifications for the social network indicated in a user's toolbar. Mozilla is also supporting two new networks, Delicious and Saavn.

The desktop and mobile versions of the browser now support TLS (Transport Layer Security) 1.2. The Android app, meanwhile, now supports several new languages: Lithuanian, Slovenian, South African English, and Thai. All versions of Firefox are free to download. The next major update, v28, is due in March.
