Facebook keeps in touch 500 million users all over the world

by 20 comments

There are nearly 7 billion people living around the globe and as it seems 1/14 of them are part of the largest social network out there – Facebook. The 500 millionth Facebook user registered yesterday, only 6 years and a half years after the website’s launch back on 4 February 2004.

While it’s not the actual Firefox web browser, the Firefox Home app is still a quite handy application: it brings all bookmarks, open tabs and history from the computer’s web browser to your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad via the Firefox Sync service.

While Firefox Home is not a full-blown web browser it makes use of a built-in Safari web browser to load pages from your bookmarks or the list with the currently opened tabs.
