Mozilla recently launched a new version of Firefox with remarkable features including customizable interface and upgraded tabs. This is the 29th version of the browser and even though many of the added features where already present in Firefox’s beta channel, with the official release, the features are now also available in the standard version that users will get once the software is automatically upgraded. In order to know exactly what to expect from the new Firefox, we listed the main aspects that make it special.
New menu organization
The new image and attractive interface are only part of the revamp that Firefox has gone through. The tabs look better and you can keep pinned tabs with the sites that you frequently visit for quicker access. You can also open and modify the size of the tabs and reduce them to a thumbnail. This will allow you to see the tabs you have open without needing to scroll down.
The site you are currently visiting would stand out with an opaque tone, while those that you have open but where you are not active will remain in the background and will be transparent. There is also a new feature called Switch to Tab that can help to rearrange your view neatly and will recognize when you start typing in a new tab the URL of a site that is already open. If this happens, Firefox will redirect you to the tab where that website is running, avoiding duplicate pages.
Enhanced Sync functionality
Thanks to Firefox Sync, your browsing history will be shared between your smartphone, tablet and laptop. In Firefox 29, past issues with this application have been solved. For instance, the current version does not require you to enter shortcodes to sync your devices. You just have to sign in with your Firefox account and your search history, as well as your passwords, open websites and other data will be instantly shared.
Social networking option
With the Firefox Share all you need to do to post content on social media sites such as Facebook is to click one button. This will allow you to share content across different sites to other without needing to open a new tab.
