Abrowser - Link to Firefox Marketplace

Catégorie:Rapporter un bogue

I just upgraded Abrowser, and I discovered a new feature called Firefox Apps, which makes proprietary software available for download, trademark issue nonwithstanding. It was in the customize window and had to be dragged somewhere else so it could be used. The icon is a rocket.

Also Tools->Apps. For those who don't know, it's a link to Firefox Marketplace, a place where people publish apps (mostly proprietary ones) for Firefox and Firefox OS. Although there are some libre apps (such as Wikipedia), Mozilla seems uninterested in displaying licenses, which some users have requested.


(And Ruben: I suggest looking at the release notes every time you update abrowser, that's where you get to know about things like this)
