Mozilla's F1 plugin streamlines Facebook, Twitter, Gmail sharing experience

F1 button hides sharing links until you want to use them

For those Firefox that are tired of swimming through all of the tiny sharing links to share articles and other web info via their social networks, Mozilla has heard your cries and may just have the answer to streamlining the webpage sharing experience. Mozilla has released F1, a plugin that turbocharges the page sharing experience. Facebook, Twitter, and Gmail are the first three supported entities due to their popularity, but Mozilla plans to expand this as they keep working on the plugin.

The concept is pretty simple: click on the F1 icon, choose how you want to share the current page, confirm your credentials, and your Gmail, tweet, or Facebook post is away. While there are other sharing toolbars out there, this seems to be a very nice one that doesn't clutter up your browser unless you want to use it which is really nice. As F1 gathers more sites to share with, I an only see it becoming more popular for those who like their browser simple and streamlined. Check out the demo video at the Source Link.
