firefox 8Firefox 8 is now officially out from the box for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android operating systems. Basically, Firefox 8 is not that much different from Firefox 7, its just offers users with a handful of new features and minor improvements. Mozilla claims that the new version is faster than all previous versions because of improved for HTML 5 and WebGL.

Firefox 8 features

  • Twitter integration: Users can now find Twitter as a search option in the drop-down menu along with Google and Bing. Firefox’s search toolbar is updated to extend its support for the Twitter searches. Currently Twitter searches can be dine in four languages English, Portuguese, Slovenian and Japanese. Mozilla will add more language in its future updates to the browser.

  • Developer option: Now web developers can customise options users have in the right click menu, saving them from having to build their own menu. Web developers can get more information here.
  • Firefox for Android: Mozilla has added functionality into Firefox for the Android devices (smart phones and tabs, etc). Android users can now enable the option named “Firefox Master Password”, which protects every saved username and password. This will help users losing the private information in case user share or lose their Android device.
  • Improvements in Graphics: Mozilla has added support for WebGL security feature, cross-origin resource sharing (CORS), which provides a secure method for loading textures from other domains in a secure way. WebGL is a technology that enables websites and web based applications to display hardware-accelerated 3D graphics without third-party software.
  • Third-Party Clean-up: In Firefox 8, security is enhanced as now third party ad-ons which install themselves will be disabled by default and user will be prompted to pick the ones which should be enabled. The latest Firefox version will ask user for permission before any third-party add-on can be installed.
