Mozilla Firefox is a well-known web browser. Its most acclaimed characteristics are stability, safety, usability and speed. Fortunately, there is a wide community of users and developers that contribute to its constant development. Likewise, it supports installing add-ons to add new features to it. Firefox uses Gecko, one of the most efficient webpage rendering engines, from which it inherits its fast navigation speed.

The application has a nice straightforward interface, with no significant differences compared with other web browsers. Therefore, most users will find no difficulty performing the basic tasks of navigating the web and creating bookmarks. In addition, as most browsers, it allows you to open various web pages in different tabs. Other features include spelling correction, progressive search, dynamic bookmarks, built-in download manager, private browsing and GPU acceleration.

Mozilla Firefox has been one of the undisputed leaders among web browsers for years. With a constant innovation and development, the members of the Mozilla Team are not willing to let their flag navigator lag behind other programs of the same type. The new version of Mozilla includes some additional features, mainly improvements in full-screen browsing, some minor changes in the visual interface design and a better rendering of the web page elements. Moreover, it allows creating a personal account allowing you to synchronize your bookmarks via cloud. Unfortunately, unlike the newer versions of similar applications, it does not include any improvement on tab management, such as tab grouping and coloring.
