About Mozilla Firefox

Review
Editors Review
Firefox is fast, stable, and features many third-party extensions that could completely change one's browsing experience, as well as a built-in Reader Mode that makes viewing articles a more comfortable experience than the default. It's also relatively secure and supports all web standards you could possibly think of. With the latest update that provides multiprocess capabilities to the browser engine, Firefox is faster and more responsive than ever, while crashing less, mitigating one of the most significant caveats to using this robust browser.
Mozilla Firefox is a free and open source web browser by the Mozilla Foundation.

Mozilla Firefox features all elements of modern browsing, such as a tabbed interface, live bookmarks, Private Browsing, smart bookmarks, and many more. Firefox features great performance, support for all major web standards, and includes special developer tools such as a JavaScript Error Console and a DOM Inspector.

Mozilla Firefox stands out from other web browsers with its support for thousands of add-ons and extensions that come under categories like news, privacy, security, tools, blogs, entertainment, humor, and many others.

Mozilla Firefox is also equipped with anti-malware and anti-phishing tools, as well as a download manager, a spellchecker and an RSS Feed Reader. It also comes with enhanced support for HTML5, multi-touch support and an optimized Javascript interpreter named TraceMonkey.

For avid viewers of written content, Firefox comes with an enhanced Reader Mode that removes advertisements, buttons, and background images, while adjusting layout, font size and face, and contrast to improve readability. Reader Mode also comes with support for text-to-speech narration, letting your browser read an article to you even while you browse other pages. Reader Mode is highly customizable, allowing you to tweak the settings to your liking, with everything from voice and fonts to light and dark themes available for configuration.

The latest version of Mozilla Firefox now features multiprocess support, providing better performance while reducing the occurrence of freezing. This updated support provides as much as 400% better responsiveness compared to previous versions of the browser.
