Mozilla Firefox has revealed the 13th beta version which comes with a speed boost. The big thing about the 13th version is the allegedly faster Web navigation. According to PCmag, Firefox 13 incorporates the SPDY protocol, which was originally planned as a successor to HTTP.
The company said the following about SPDY and its purpose:
“SPDY encrypts all communication with SSL, which makes browsing more secure. Users will notice quicker page load speeds on sites that support SPDY networking.”
If you update your browser to the latest version you will pleasantly surprised to see that the home-page offers easy access to bookmarks, history, settings, add-ons and more. The tabs will also undergo a revamp and they will apparently feature “Chrome-esque” quick links to the sites you visit the most. This can also be customized, added and of course, removed.
Firefox 13 is still only intended for developers and it’s advised for regular users to wait until it’s somewhat stable. If you still wish to download it, simply follow the link.
Are you looking forward to the new version of Firefox?
