This is what we wanted Diaspora to do: Mozilla's "newest Social API demo removes the need for social websites entirely, tapping emerging web standards to create a real-time video calling, data sharing app — one part Skype, one part Facebook, all parts web-native." It's more than just a social network. "pPeer-to-peer video calls and file sharing features come from WebRTC, a proposed web standard that Mozilla and others are working on in conjunction with the W3C." More from Mozilla's Maire Reavy on the Mozilla blog. The implicaions for Facebook if this takes off are significant, but of course, we would need to see other browsers adopt the API. Most likely outcome? Facebook launching its own browser, to complement its mobile apps.
