Firefox 64: At iGuRu.gr we have faithfully kept a tradition since the site came online. We publish the final versions of the browser with download links before they are announced by the Mozilla Foundation (unless they catch us in bed).
Firefox 64 will be the upcoming version of the popular browser and is already available for user testing on Nightly. Below we will see some interesting new features and improvements that come with the upcoming browser.
Firefox 64 of course uses the new Quantum engine. It comes with a specialized interface that has the code name "Photon". The browser no longer supports XUL-based add-ons, so many classic add-ons are not compatible.
Firefox 64 Share
The 64 version brings many changes that will be especially useful for Windows 10 users, such as built-in alerts with the Windows 10 system. What does this mean; If you want to disable these alerts you can do so through the Windows 10 settings and not through the browser settings.
So with a few clicks you will be able to share a URL between all the installed applications from Store or copy it to the clipboard by using the appropriate option in the Windows 10 share window. Click the button with the three horizontal dots and open the site URL.
Redesign the add-on manager
Items appear as cards with space between them. Due to this change, the list of add-ons occupies more screen space, but is more user-friendly.
New page about about: performance
Firefox 64 also brings a new about: performance page that can help you understand which tabs consume a lot of your system resources. Finally, this useful page has its own command in the main menu. It can be opened from the More - Task Manager menu.
Move Tabs from the Menu
Firefox 64 adds some new options to the tab menu. You will find a new "select all tabs" command and a new "move tab" submenu that allows you to move the selected tabs to the beginning or end of the tab bar or send them to a new tab. window.
Remove RSS and Live Bookmarks.
Mozilla has decided to shut down RSS and Live Bookmarks. You will no longer find the "Subscribe" button, and there will be no RSS icon on the browser screen. According to the Mozilla Foundation, this change improves browser security. The company also said that these features are not popular with Firefox users.
Personally, I find that there are too many who use RSS. If you are one of them, with the new browser you will need to install an extension or use a third party service such as Feedly.
