Hello, Firefox!

I recently blogged about being a bit worried about the Firefox browser, however this item gives me hope - this could be really cool.
It's been a very long time since Mozilla released something that really caught my attention. All that changed when I found out about Firefox Hello. This is Mozilla's Web RTC feature that, quite frankly, could be game changing. Effectively, Hello is the means for real-time browser-based chat (video and audio), without having to use a service.

Why is this important? I have friends, fans, contacts, that prefer chatting as a means of communication. Some use Skype, others use Google Hangouts. Depending on which person wants to chat, I have to use a different service. With Firefox Hello, both parties just have to open up the Firefox browser and initiate an Hello chat.
