At present, the service works with Mozilla Firefox 54 and Google Chrome, but doesn’t yet play nice with Apple Safari or Microsoft Edge.
Support for the latter is however in the works.
Mozilla’s other goodies
If file sending doesn’t quite do it for you, Mozilla’s Test Pilot platform also adds two other experiments to the Firefox browser this month.
This includes a built-in browser notepad and a feature dubbed “Voice Fill” which gives the browser the power of speech recognition.
