Ubuntu updating firefox

This article highlights the pros and cons of both the operating systems, given a set of requirements, it also attempts to show you which OS would be best suited for you.I have made an attempt to write this article without much tech-laden jargon, so for those of you are not very computer savvy, it will help you make informed decisions.While I admit getting used to Linux may take a while for an average windows user, it is definitely easy to use.Linux comes in various flavours, also known as ‘distributions’.

The official releases of Firefox for mac OS are universal builds that include both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the browser in one package, and have been this way since Firefox 4.

HTML5 Forms API makes web based forms easier to implement and validate. The Firefox Sync setup experience has been greatly improved across desktop and mobile devices. Overhaul of the bookmarks and history code, enabling faster bookmarking and startup performance. Improved plugin compatibility with hardware acceleration enabled.

Speed, functionality, and compatibility improvements to Web GL. Per-compartment garbage collection is now enabled, reducing work done during complex animations. Support for the proposed Do Not Track ("DNT") header. Firefox no longer switches into offline mode automatically. Hovering over links now displays the URL at the bottom of the window rather than in the location bar.

Site-specific preference service, used initially for text zoom, allowing zoom setting to remain on each website. New Quit dialog handles multiple windows more elegantly and allows users to save session. Remember password prompt changed to non-modal information bar. Link history lookup is now performed asynchronously on a thread. An experimental Direct2D rendering backend on Windows is available, turned off by default. Currently loaded web pages are shown in the location bar autocomplete list, allowing switching to existing tabs. More Performance improvement and support for new CSS and HTML5 web technology. The Bookmarks Toolbar has been replaced with a Bookmarks Button by default (you can switch it back if you'd like). Changes to how XPCOM components are registered in order to help startup time and process separation. Web authors can now get touch events from Firefox users on Windows 7 machines. Panorama, a new feature that gives users a visual overview of all open tabs, allowing them to be sorted and grouped, is now included.

Autoscroll rewrite: numerous bug fixes and significant performance gain. More APIs implemented from WHATWG specs, such as ability to read files from file selection fields without need to upload and cut/copy/paste events, and cross-site XMLHttp Request. Experimental full-page zoom support, but no UI to control it. Loading the HTML5 specification no longer causes very long browser pauses. The stop and reload buttons have been merged when they are adjacent on the toolbar. Significant API improvements are available for JS-ctypes. The beta version of Adobe Flash is now run in a separate process on Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6). A new way of representing values in Java Script that allows Firefox to execute heavy, numeric code (used for things like graphics and animations) more efficiently. An experimental API is included to provide more efficient Javascript animations. Direct2D Hardware Acceleration is now on by default for Windows 7 users.
