Mozilla Firefox (Linux)

Editors' Review


Firefox 23 expands its social functionality by integrating a share button into the Firefox toolbar.

The new share button lets users post an interesting article to friends and family via profile, private message, or e-mail without having to leave the page. This is already complemented by a slew of recent feature add-ons in Firefox that include the ability to view your feeds, check status updates and activity, and chat with friends directly within the sidebar.

Developers are also given a few new toys to play with, notably the Network Monitor. The Network Monitor, a convenient, historical view of network activity on your site, has received a significant face lift since its original Web Console days.

Mozilla has also enabled Mixed Content blocking by default, which prevents MITM (man-in-the-middle) attacks on secure HTTP pages by giving users more control over whether to allow protection or override the protection. As you browse, users will notice a shield icon that indicates that Mixed Content protection is enabled.

As always, head on over to the Download button to upgrade your Firefox client.

"Good update to great product"

Nice continuation of a fine product


still lags behind Google's Chrome Browser in rendering and other flash heavy sites on my laptop.
