Mozila has launched Firefox 13 via its regular Release channel today and has packed it with new features deeming it a “landmark release”.
One of the first things you’ll notice when firefox 13 for the first time s the all-new start page. As before, it’s minimalist in design, but now features a new navigation bar, allowing you to access your Downloads, Bookmarks, History, Add-ons, Sync and Settings.
Also, when you open a tab a new screen shows which is now populated with the most visited pages. If it’s too Opera-ish or Chrome-ish for you., you can easily disable the feature by clicking the icon on the top right. Prvidently, Mozilla has also included a feature called “Rest Firefox”, which in theory would fix problems caused by add-ons or buggy browser behavior by resetting it.
The firefox download manager has also received a handy new features. You can literately copy an URL of a page or a file and paste it directly onto the Download manager’s window and it’ll start downloading.
