Says they do things differently.
We hope you got used to the Mozilla’s fat release cycles already as the open source organization has just published the final version of the Firefox 13.
If you think that it’s another minor release, don’t be fooled as FF 13 does include a couple of great features worth mentioning.
As reported earlier, Firefox 13 now has a redesigned home page for quick and easy bookmarks, history and other features access. In addition to that, a new tab page has borrowed speed dial implementation from Google Chrome as it now displays the most visited pages.
Secondly, the new version of Firefox has a lot of under the hood changes as well, ranging from the SPDY networking protocol implementation, which is now enabled by default (developed by Google) and over 70 web developer tools improvements.
