On January 13th, the Mozilla company released its newest upgraded version of the Firefox internet browser, the Firefox version 35.0. Mozilla has apparently made some notable improvements and updates to its latest and greatest version of Firefox.
One the new features of Mozilla’s Firefox 35.0 is its ability to share cellular signals and mobile device Wi-Fi for much more enhanced geolocation services. In addition to the enhanced geolocation functionality, the mobile Firefox 35.0 browser also perceives the Bing search engine now using HTTPS for a more secure manner of searching online.
The Bing search engine first became Mozilla’s default internet search method in the latter part of last year, when Mozilla company agreed to a 5-year partnership with Yahoo. Yahoo has actually been powered by the Microsoft Corp.’s Bing since the year 2010, which was after the company’s 10-years long deal with Google ended in 2014.
Probably one of the biggest and most popular features the new Firefox browser has is its streamlined version of the Hello Firefox video calling service, which is a service that also happens to be plug-in-free.
This latest browser version also has HTTP Public Key Pinning Extensions for improved verification of encrypted connections implemented into its design.
Three of the new HTML5 support attributes Mozilla also added to the Firefox update is support for the CSS front-loading API, the incorporation of resource timing API and the default enabling of CSS filters.
A number of fixes are also seen in this latest Mozilla Firefox 35.0. Among these is a reduction in the use of resources for scaled images, numerous security patches and fixes, and PDF.js has been updated to version 1.0.907.
These fixes also include repairs to the Gecko Media plug-in sandbox escape, uninitialized memory usage during the rendering of bitmaps, miscellaneous memory safety hazards, and cookie inoculation thru Proxy Authenticate response. Several other features and specs have been added, upgraded and/or updated on the Firefox 35.0
Firefox 35.0 can be downloaded for free for Windows, Linux, and OS X directly from the Mozilla website. Anyone who is currently using an older version of Firefox and downloads this newest one will automatically have the browser updated on their device.
Mozilla also has plans to release Firefox 36.0 sometime late next month. The company has plans for even more feature upgrades and spec updates for its infamous Firefox browser.
