Sharing is caring in Firefox for Android

Version 24 for Android adds "bump" sharing, and now supports WebRTC, like its desktop counterpart.

On Tuesday, Mozilla released a major update to Firefox for Android, bringing over many of the sharing services from its older-brother desktop version.

Version 24 adds a Share menu that lets you add your most frequently-used sharing services like Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail for quick sharing. If you prefer a more physical approach, the new version also adds bump sharing, which lets you fist-bump your friends with other Android handsets to quickly send open tabs, news articles, or just about any page from the Web. This works via Near Field Communications technology so both devices must have an NFC chip.

Firefox also brings a built-in Reader with added benefits to improve legibility, including font-swapping between serif and sans-serif text, changing background and text colors to black on white or vice versa, and the ability to save articles for future reading.
