Firefox 20.0: Find out what is new

Filed under

Mozilla will upgrade the stable channel of its desktop browser to Firefox 20.0 today. The beta release notes are the source of our information as the final release notes have not been published yet.

One of the biggest improvements is the new per-window private browsing mode that all Firefox users can make use of now. This is basically the same feature that browsers such as Chrome or Opera have been offering for a while. Instead of having to switch to private browsing mode and closing all regular browser windows and tabs in the process, Firefox users can now launch a private browsing window next to the existing windows so that they can work in regular and private browsing windows at the same time.

  • KDE Developer Working On Windows 8 Inspired Look
    Kai Uwe has been working on some experimental hacks to resemble Windows 8, although Microsoft's default interface has changed with Windows 10. He's calling this work "U-Bahn" (the German equivalent of a Metro subsystem system) in reference to Microsoft at the time calling it Metro. This was just some brief hacking and he's not planning to see this U-Bahn project through to the end.
  • Pursuing Awesomeness
    While applets can be installed through “Get Hot New Stuff” and distribution repositories, there’s also the classic .plasmoid file. A feature suggested by one of my colleagues – fresh KDE Plasma user – was to drag .plasmoid files onto the desktop or panel and have them installed. After Marco Martin implemented the neccessary KPackage plumbing this is now possible.
