Account Manager Coming to Firefox

by Developer.com Staff

Mozilla's Account Manager has graduated from Mozilla Labs to become a part of a future Firefox release.

This week Mozilla Labs announced that their Account Manager tool is moving from the lab to be included in a future Firefox release.

"The Account Manager makes it incredibly easy for users to create new accounts with optional randomly generated passwords, and log into and out of them with just a click. As a web developer, adding support for this feature could take as little as fifteen minutes of hacking," the announcement said.

Basically the point of Account Manager is to make it easier for Firefox users to log into Web sites.
