Mozilla previews Geolocation for Firefox
Geode is also limited at present to using the Skyhook wireless service, which uses Wifi to locate users, though the W3C Geolocation API allows for services such as GPS and Cell tower triangulation to be used for location. This limitation also means that only Wifi-equipped devices can currently be geolocated. The plan is to expand Geode's capabilities in the future, based on user feedback on functionality and privacy. Mozilla pointed to Pownce and Yahoo Fire Eagle as services which can make use of Geode's geolocations capabilities.
The W3C Geolocation API was recently incorporated into Gears with the Geolocation API currently functional on Windows Mobile devices. Mozilla's move shows the API specification moving into the mainstream for the next generation of browsers.
