Firefox 23

Mozilla Corporation recently updated Firefox browser to the latest version – Firefox 23. This update is available for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android users. One noticeable thing about the latest version is a brand new logo.

Firefox 23 for Desktops comes with a improved mixed content blocker which protects you from losing valuable data. For developers, this version comes with a new network monitor. Along with several minor tweaks come more options to choose search providers.

Another great feature is a share button on the Toolbar that lets you share content directly from the browser.

Coming to Android, Firefox 23 brings a lot of changes and improvements too. It includes an Awesome screen with URL Auto Complete letting you visit your favorite URLs with ease as the browser completes the URL for you. It has a dynamic toolbar which hides the navigation bar when you scroll down,making browsing easier. You also get faster tab switching along with easier RSS subscription. For devices without access to Reader Mode, Firefox 23 lets users add pages to their reading list.
