Firefox hits version 50

Firefox hits version 50


The perennial Mozilla Firefox has hit version 50. Launched back in 2002, Firefox has faced a lot of tough competition over the years, first from Internet Explorer and then from Chrome, but it continues to be a popular browser with a faithful user base.
Version 50 is not a massive upgrade and if you have auto update enabled, you wouldn't even notice anything different. But there are minor changes underneath, such as
  • Playback video on more sites without plugins with WebM EME Support for Widevine on Windows and Mac
  • Improved performance for SDK extensions or extensions using the SDK module loader
  • Added download protection for a large number of executable file types on Windows, Mac and Linux
  • Increased availability of WebGL to more than 98 percent of users on Windows 7 and newer
  • Added Guarani (gn) locale
  • Added option to Find in page that allows users to limit search to whole words only
  • Updates to keyboard shortcuts
  • Added a built-in Emoji set for operating systems without native Emoji fonts (Windows 8.0 and lower, and Linux)
Firefox 50 is available on Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android.
