After several Nightly releases, the Aurora version of Firefox 13 has been pushed to Mozilla’s testers’ channel and is now available to download.
Despite a dozen of changes, the open source organization is currently focused on a tab page, which, as see in the screenshot above, has been redesigned.
Just like Google Chrome, Firefox 13 will include thumbnails of the frequently visited web pages that will be based on your Awesome bar. Nothing too exciting yet, folks.
As far as other changes go, here is a full list below.
Firefox 13 Alpha (Aurora) Changelog
- Windows: Firefox is now easier to update with one less prompt (User Account Control)
- Page Source now has line numbers
- Line breaks are now supported in the title attribute
- Smooth scrolling is now enabled by default
- URLs pasted into the download manager window are now automatically downloaded
- The column-fill CSS property has been implemented
- Support for the text-align-last CSS property has been added
- Experimental support for ECMAScript 6 Map and Set objects has been implemented
- Improvements to “Find in Page” to center search result
Starting from February 16, the new tab page will be turned off by default, so in case you would like to re-enable it, simply:
Type about:preferences in the URL bar
Search for browser.newtab.url’ setting
Set it to ‘about:newtab’
