Even though the final Firefox 11 build was supposed to be delayed due to the security flaw, which was discovered during the Pwn2Own content, it looks like Mozilla went ahead and fixed everything just in time.
However, it looks like the Firefox devs will have to start buying cakes of their own as Microsoft halted the tradition, thanks to the faster development cycles.
So what’s new in Firefox 11?
As we mentioned earlier, the following build will allow users to import Google Chrome data to Firefox and synchronize their add-ons across different computers. In addition to that, a new set of HTML5 video controls has been implement for you to play with and few other goodies.
