Mozilla made a test version available of its upcoming The Coop social networking tool. This tool will add social networking features to Firefox, ARS Technica decided to check out what this tool can do:
Although The Coop will eventually communicate with a multitude of social networking services, the current prototype only works with Facebook. Deployed as a Firefox plug-in, The Coop provides a new right-hand sidebar interface that will display a list of your Facebook friends after login. The Coop specification says that Facebook status information will eventually appear in the friend display, but right now it only shows the names of your friends. When you click on any of the people in the friend list, the interface changes to show only that friend, but no additional information appears. Next to each user in the friend list, three icons are displayed: a web page, a camera, and a film reel. In the current prototype, those icons appear to have no function or significance..
