Support for graphics-heavy games and boost for Android release
Mozilla has announced updates to its desktop and Android browsers.
Of the Android release, Mozilla said it’s brought to tablets many of the “dramatic improvements that made Firefox for your Android phone super fast”, including quicker startup, page loads, zooming, panning and general web app performance. Further enhancements include a revamped personalised start page, a new ‘Awesome Screen’ that provides browsing history, bookmarks, passwords and form data, the ability to request the desktop version of a site from the browser menu, and “increased security with features like Do Not Track, Master Password, HTTP Strict Transport Security and more”.
Importantly, given Mozilla’s enthusiasm for web apps and stores to house them, the new Android release also boasts improved HTML5 capabilities, and the company suggests checking out the BrowserQuest demo “to see just how powerful, fast and fun the Web can be”.
