Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Firefox is one of the most popular open-source browsers, developed by Mozilla. The latest version available is Firefox 35 Beta, which will reach its final version in mid-January, 2015.
Among others, Firefox 35 Beta allows the users to make calls directly from the browser via the Firefox Hello’s Guest Mode without any account needed.
To perform Firefox chata with other people using WebRTC-supported browsers like Firefox, Chrome or Opera, you just need to share the provided link with them and the connection goes through the Mozilla servers.
