Mozilla releases Firefox 14.0.1


Mozilla released the next update to it's Firefox browser to version 14.0.1 for both desktop and mobile today. The updates include several new features and bug fixes for each version.

The main new features for the desktop version include Google searches that now feature HTTPS, full screen support for Mac OS X Lion, changes to plugin configurations to allow for only loading on click, and auto-completion of typed URLs in the "Awesome Bar." Security updates include an improved site identity manager to "prevent spoofing of an SSL connection with favicons" and various bug fixes.

The new features for the mobile version include the better support for Flash, faster start-up and page load times, a redesigned interface, better text readability through font size inflation, and a new panning/zooming architecture meant to improve touch responsiveness. Note that while Flash is now supported for phones, tablets are still out of luck, and devices with less than Android 2.2 no longer meet the minimum specs at all.

Launching Firefox should return a prompt to update the browser, but if you haven't checked out Firefox yet you can click here to download the desktop version of Firefox. On Android devices you can find by searching for Firefox in the Google Play Store, or you can click here to check out the browser-based store page. If you're interested in the full release notes you can find them for both desktop and mobile at Firefox release notes page.

When one goes above to the "click here" intro page to the latest Firefox one will immediately see what bugs me most about these latest Firefox releases: namely, the superfluous grey words "Go to a website," and "Google" cluttering up the form boxes.

Who today does not know how to use an address or search box?

Yes, I know one can go to about:config and fix it (after reading through a gazillion obtuse options). But what a bother when the page could be designed clean and functional.

Imagine if these comment boxes were laden with "Put your message here."

Hrumf!

PS: I dropped the search box on my Firefox and now search in the address bar-- with DuckDuckGo! as my default search engine-- using its (!) "bang" capabilities gives me tailored access to most specialized search engines.

I might like Google better if they would let up hard selling Chrome at their sites.
