    Default Firefox 20 Released


    Mozilla has pushed an update for their popular Firefox Web browser Tuesday, bringing it up to version 20. The update adds three new major features, including per-page private browsing, a redesigned downloading interface, and the ability to close hanging plugins without having the browser hang on you.

    The redesigned downloading interface uses a Safari-like method, which includes a pop-up bubble that can be shown by clicking on the downloads button to the right of the search bar. The download button shows the progress, as well as the time remaining for downloads:



    Other improvements in Firefox 20 include better security, additional performance improvements, some minor bug fixes, and more features for Web developers to take advantage of in their Web pages. You can view the full Firefox 20 change log here.

    For those that already have Firefox installed on their machines, you can simply head over to the About Firefox menu to automatically begin downloading your update. You will be asked to restart the browser after installing. Alternatively, you can use the download links that we provide for you below:

    Chrome is unfortunately the best still. Firefox has lost it's way somewhere along the line. Used to love it. Now can't stand it

    Yeah. It's weird to me how people have vastly different experiences. Chrome for me does not feel "zippy" at all. Interface isn't intuitive like Firefox. Tried Chrome for a day - will never go back.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    Chrome's UI is enviable, but Firefox has so many useful features, including add-ons, plugins, and themes that make for a fully customizable platform. I use Firefox at work, specifically for the customizations to create faster and efficient workflow.

    I appreciate the level of dedication Mozilla puts into its flagship software. In my opinion, the reason why there are so many updates is because; 1. They actually integrate user requested features, 2. feedback from millions of users surface more flaws and bugs to be fixed to create a more stable version, and 3. Mozilla's developer community needs flexibility within Firefox and updates are necessary to accommodate add-ons and plugins to customize Firefox.

    Read his first sentence again. It's Firefox that has the addons and plugins. Not Chrome.

    I've always wondered about people who say one browser is faster than the other. How much faster are you guys talking about that it makes such a big deal to you guys. I don't see how you much noticeably slower one is that you would even use this as an argument against one browser. I notice next to no difference. Do you just have a slow connection or computer or something?
