Firefox has finally managed to roll-out their GUI redesign. Although it has an uncanny resemblance to Google’s elite Chrome browser, Mozilla who boasts about the refurbishment as ‘Mozilla Introduces the Most Customizable Firefox Ever with an Elegant New Design‘ is adamant that they have enhanced the functionality as well. Customization and Firefox Sync is boosted up and Bookmarking and accessing Add-ons Manager have been simplified.
Mozilla in their blog states:
We reimagined and redesigned Firefox to reflect how you use the Web today and we are excited to introduce many features including an elegant and fun design, new menu, customization mode and an enhanced Firefox Sync service powered by Firefox Accounts.
According to them, the improvements are as follows:
- Elegant New Design: Sleek new tabs and an overall modern look that makes it easier to experience the Web the way you want.
- Customization Mode: Makes it easy for you to personalize your Web experience to access the features you use the most. You can easily drag and drop your favorite feature, tool or add-on in the menu or toolbar.
- Firefox Menu: Includes popular browser controls, features and add-ons in one place to make it easier and faster to access them. The menu is completely customizable so you can edit or add features you use most.
- Fun and Simple Bookmarks: You can create bookmarks with a single click and manage them from the same place.
- Easy Access to Add-ons Manager: Firefox includes an Add-ons Manager you can access directly from the menu to help easily discover and install add-ons.
- Enhanced Firefox Sync Powered by Firefox Accounts: Just create a Firefox Account and our sync feature makes it even easier to setup and add multiple devices with end-to-end encryption. Firefox Sync gives you access to Awesome Bar history, saved passwords, bookmarks, open tabs and form data across your computers and mobile Android devices.
Along with these novelties, Firefox has continued to strengthen its compatibility with Web Platforms and Developer Tools.
