Mozilla Labs, the company that makes Firefox, has been working on an experimental service they hope will change the way people interact with the Internet.

The service, called Ubiquity, is currently in an open alpha test and allows users to try out features that could eventually become Web 3.0 standards.

The service differs from anything else available by using advanced scripting to actually change the content of a page, which could include inserting a Google map of an address directly into an email or translating Japanese into English without requiring a translation service.

For a better idea, watch this video. Ignore the opening as it gets better once they start demonstrating the features. 

 

Ubiquity can be downloaded and tested by Firefox users by going to this page or downloading it directly here. It's a little tricky to get the hang of, but we think it could very well be the future of the Internet.
