If you have already moved to the latest version, you may have noticed some improvements along with some strange things. Usually we updates our browser to v14.0 from v13.0 But here, users are actually updating to v14.0.1 directly. It’s not a part of bug fixing or patching but Mozilla Team is trying to sync versions of its both Desktop and Mobile Browsers each other through this update.
In other hand, These great updates in Mozilla will bring Google Searches more securely, improve online gaming experience, feature to help you to choose which browser add-ons and plug-in to enable on a website, Full Screen support for Mac Devices, Auto completion in URL Box. But this version isn’t enough to make as much headlines as the previous one did because the main changes have taken place both at User Interaction Front Line and Backend. However there are some awesome features included in the latest version. So we’ve found out Top Five features in Mozilla Firefox 14 which can really force you to use Mozilla.
Encrypted Google Search Results (So, More Secure)
Firefox had added a Do Not Track feature in the previous versions of browser in order to tell websites that you don’t need (like) to be tracked. Through the latest version, Mozilla Firefox ensures that all your Google Search Keywords and results are sent via HTTPS. Whatever you are searching on Google, no one will know the queries. Mentioned encryption method is only working for Google Search and Browser team also hopes to allow this awesome feature to all other top Search Engines. Still the current preference is for the very same tech Giant.
Full Screen Support For Mac Devices
After a long time, it has come. Mozilla Firefox will support Full Screen feature in Macintosh OS. Firefox team takes a little bit more time to implement this feature on OS X Lion.
Firefox users are now able to enable browser plug-ins selectively for a specific website through just a click. It’s something like a security related feature and a way to save memory as well. This feature should be enabled from the About:config page. Go to the mentioned page and search for plug-ins then select ‘click_to_play.’
Auto Completing URLs
Mozilla Firefox 14 includes this awesome but not much new feature. Based on your browsing history and saved bookmarks, suggestions will appear as a list below as you type the next letter. Only URLs will appear here and not search queries. As you hit the space bar while suggesting, list will disappear.
Implementation of Pointer Lock API
It’s a great feature for online gaming geeks. This technology is allowing websites to access your PC’s Raw mouse Movements and hence it becomes helpful for making the movements more precise and improve online gaming experience along with sites that allow 3D Modeling or related Web Apps. It’s also useful for non-gaming enthusiasts because the technology can also improve performance of Web Apps.
As always, Firefox teams have included some security updates and bug fixes. But amazingly they are still keeping silence on the ‘New Tab Page’ issue which had spread over in last version. However, these updates and new features are making Mozilla Firefox stronger to compete with other Web Browsers.
