Geolocation in Firefox 3.5

By Deane Barker on June 9, 2009

geolocation in Firefox 3.5: The next version of Firefox will have a geolocation API built into it.

In fact, I have no idea what the postal code is for Toronto. I know how to find it, but that is a lot of work to simply tell a web application where I am.

Firefox 3.5 includes a simple JavaScript API that allows you to quickly geo-enable your web application. It allows users to optionally share their location with websites without having to type in a postal code.

  1. Remember when Firefox first became popular? It was the no-frills web browser that opened fast and wasn’t bloated with pointless rubbish. It seems the later editions of FF have become larger, more bloated and just as slow as IE was.
