Report on the front-burner reveals that Mozilla today launched much awaited new version of Firefox browser. Compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android, Firefox 60 is “by far the biggest update since Firefox 1.0 in 2004”. The release builds on Firefox Quantum and this version 60 brings a whole new array of consolidated features and tools. Providing the flexibility of personalizing browser and paying much heed to privacy, this version includes enterprise customization, Web Authentication API, about-face of new tab page, Pocket sponsored stories, and faster page rendering on Android.

The new version of Firefox, Firefox 60 is available for the desktop via Firefox.com, and existing users will get updates automatically. For the Android version, it will be rolling-out imperceptibly on Google Play.

Firefox Quantum For Enterprise:

Ready For IT:

The standard Rapid Release auto-updates with performance improvements and new features roughly every six weeks. Extended Support Release usually receives these features in one big upgrade per year. However, now IT professionals can either choose to deploy standard Rapid Release (RR) of Firefox or the Extended Support Release (ESR). With the recent release, the Extended Support Release of Firefox is now version 60. In addition to that, Firefox enables another feature — the ability for IT professionals to easily configure the browser using Windows Group Policy.

Web Authentication Enables Additional Security:

With the release of the new version of Firefox, Firefox 60 is the world’s first browser to support a new security standard, Web Authentication (WebAuthn).

This standard enables the user to use a single device, for instance, Yubikey, to log into their accounts without entering any passcode. WebAuth is a method to unsaddle phishing by employing sophisticated levels of authentication processes to protect user account. It supports authenticators like security keys or bio-metric specifications such as fingerprints or face recognition. Given the fact that, WebAuth must recognize YubiKey in order to provide access, it need’s to be plugged in too. Once connected, the website will automatically read and log you in.

Accelerating Business With Firefox Quantum:

In a monotonous procedure, employees have to switch through tabs and wait for pages to load. In such a condition, enabling a browser that loads pages even a few seconds faster ensure time-efficiency and better productivity.

Firefox Quantum is a browser that is able to harness the power of multi-core computers. Mozilla has been a trailblazer in a whole new systems programming language called Rust. Parts of Firefox Quantum are coded in Rust.

Firefox Quantum also features a multi-process architecture-“Just right” which balances speed with memory usage. This architecture enables Firefox Quantum to load pages faster than Chrome and Edge and at the same time, uses less RAM.

Sponsored Stories From Pocket To New Tabs:

A popular web-clipping service – Pocket, enables a user to save content from the internet to read or watch later across multiple devices. Mozilla had supported Pocket on a native basis for a while. However now, it has acquired “Read-It-Later” app and is rumoured to be making it open-sourced.

Although limited to the US, Canada and Germany now, deeper integrations with Pocket will enable it to display trending stories on new tabs.

Letting Through Firefox60 – Takeaways:

  • Mozilla, with ushering in Quantum now is aiming to build breakthrough enhancements in order to propel Firefox forward.
  • Firefox will utilize threads to focus computing power along with active network connection.
  • New versions of Firefox is released every six to eight weeks, and reportedly, Firefox 61 is slotted for late June.
  • Mozilla is trying to collate two extreme ends; ensuring the cogent revenue stream to the browser and making sure that user privacy is well-thought-of.
  • Users are in no-holds-barred position, as they can disable the feature anytime they wish. In this way, Mozilla has tipped the scale towards the client side.
