Firefox has lost the battle for supremacy in the field of internet browsers for many years, but the new version is trying to generate new followers.
New versions of the most popular browsers appear every few months. This time, we are talking about Firefox 82, the new iteration whose propagation process has already started and you can install it from Getfirefox.com. If you already have Firefox,
According to the official statement on the subject, version 82 of Firefox is faster than ever, with less time to both start the browser and load web pages. In internal tests by Mozilla, a site with a flexbox arrangement, which adapts in real time to mobile or desktop, will load about 20% faster than before.
If you tend to have a lot of web pages open at once, they will recover 17% faster when you close and reopen your browser. When you have Firefox open and you choose to open new windows, at least on Windows, they should appear 10% faster.
Beyond the performance features, there are also various functions that have had improvements. If you watch videos and love the idea of ”floating” playback windows you can use the new Picture-in-Picture button. On the Mac, the function in question also has a key combination to activate it faster – Command + Option + Shif +}. Pocket integration has also improved, and you can now “explore new articles when saving a webpage.”
From a point of view, these are not necessarily revolutionary changes, but any step forward from Mozilla is worth appreciating, in the context in which the company is not in a good situation at all. In January, it laid off 70 employees, and another 250 were added to them in August this year. In the end, the company hopes that you will subscribe to its VPN service for $ 5 a month and lives with the hope that you will want to use a browser that does not come from a tech giant like Google, Microsoft or Apple.
