After deciding on the fast development cycle and releasing the new updates and products soon Mozilla is again in the news with its latest Firefox 11. It was only the end of January that the development team released Firefox version 10, which included numerous security fixes as well as some additional features such as CSS 3D transforms and anti-aliasing for webGL. Just under the six weeks, Mozilla today released the new version of Firefox i.e Firefox 11. It’s more of the evolved update rather than any massive update.
The notable feature to Firefox 11 is the ability to migrate bookmarks, browsing history and cookies from both Chrome and IE. Also number of fixes have been implemented which was left outstanding in the previous build.
After creating a buzz in the browser war by giving the tough competition to IE and creating the best of the browser, Mozilla is now looking to enter the mobile web space.
According to the latest report from the Mercury News, Mozilla is planning to launch its own app store, called as Mozilla Marketplace, which will offer mobile apps which can run on iPhone, Android Phone and Windows Phone.
Mozilla is also working to develop a smartphone that would run apps within its browser and would not be specified to operating system.
Showing interest in entering the mobile web market, Brendan Eich, chief technology officer for Mozilla, said, “Hang onto your hats; we’re moving fast. A few years down the road, with Web technologies continuing to evolve, you should be able to do all the beautiful games and the presentation and the tools that you see in native mobile apps, but with a Web-powered phone.”
The reports states that Mozilla has been talking to manufacturers and wireless carriers that might be able to build and support a Mozilla phone. The prototype of the software is expected to be unveiled as early as next week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
After the recent release of Firefox 10 final version, users might be shock to see the release of Firefox 11 beta. It seems Mozilla pumping out the latest Mozilla version very fast.
Firefox beta 11 contains some sizable and notable changes, and one of the largest and most useful is the inclusion of add-on synchronization. The new sync features offer the ability to mirror any add-on installations you may have across multiple desktop machines, whereas previously you would have to go through the whole process manually for each set up. Firefox is trying hard to catch up with the growth of Google Chrome which have offered sync ability much before.
The official Firefox beta 11 release contains number of feature as well as fixes and updated, below are the updates :
[NEW] Firefox can now migrate your Bookmarks, History and Cookies from Google Chrome.
[NEW] With Sync Enabled, add-ons can now be synchronized across your computers.
