Just after the Firefox 13 benchmarks were finished, Mozilla has published a new final build for you to play with; believe it or not but itâ€™s called Firefox 14.
So what does this new release bring to the table? Although I am tempted to say â€śnothingâ€ť, we still welcome various security fixes and the HTTPS search. Other noticeable new features include a full screen support for the Mac OS X and auto complete when using the Awesome Bar.
Yes, we will finally post this.
With a release of new web browser builds, including Chrome 20 and Firefox 13, guys at the TomsHardware have yet again dome a good job ad benchmarking all of them.

Opus, a low-delay audio codec optimized for both voice and general-purpose audio, has been approved by the IETF. Originally developed by Xiph, Opus is a merger of Skypeâ€™s SILKâ€™s and Xiphâ€™s CELT codecs.
Xiph, which was originally made Opus/CELT for the low-latency audio, has become competitive in the general purpose audio codecs area.
Well, here is an interesting turn of events, a somewhat inverted market share data.
Instead of focusing on the user experience and eliminating the useless 2 year release cycle, IE team has decided to fire more ads instead.

If you think that itâ€™s another minor release, donâ€™t be fooled as FF 13 does include a couple of great features worth mentioning.
