What’s New in Mozilla Firefox 4
Mozilla released its Firefox 4 earlier this week. The new product has been put into several cycles of production which is clear indication of how much Mozilla is involved in its development. The brand new, swanky Firefox 4 is faster than its predecessor but not as fast as Google Chrome. Other than this there is a whole lot of features that are packaged. Read on to slowly explore and uncover then.
One of the most noticeable change in new Firefox is its User Interface. The UI has been made clutter free and has been designed in Chrome style with tabs on the top of address bar. You can drag them and also pluck them out into separate window. They are now can be pinned to stay in the tab even after closing the Browser. This feature is called as Application Tabs.
There has been a significant improvement in the drop down list. The new lists have less options with many sub menus. Also during the private browsing mode, the button of Firefox changes its color from orange to purple.
The Refresh and Stop button have been integrated into a single button that changes its function depending upon the browser activity. This has made address bar and the search bar to have more space and you can easily type in long URLs or queries. Another great addition that has done here is the Paste & Go and Paste & Search option.
Another great feature addition is the tab management called as Firefox Panorama. Simply press Ctrl+Shift+E to open all your tabs in thumbnail form which makes easier navigation to a particular one. You can create groups of tabs and can perform a whole lot of operations on it.
The Add-ons have also undergone a major makeover. The user friendly interface show which add-ons are running and which has been disabled.
