Firefox 3: From HTML Renderer To Information Broker

Filed under: firefox, Mozilla — tuxicity @ 11:10 pm

Looks like the Mozilla folks are working on turning Firefox from HTML renderer to information broker. Using technology called “microformats,” the browser would be able to link content in Web pages to the appropriate application on the client. Users would be able to click to add contact information on a Web page to their address book, or an appointment to their calendar, or translate an address to their favorite map. We can already do some of this now; Alex Faaborg, a user experience designer at Mozilla, describes how the tools will become much more powerful in Firefox 3.
