Mozilla released updates for its desktop and Android Web browser with a number of new features and enhancements. The latest version of the desktop browser is designed to use less memory by targeting add-ons that hog available RAM. Other features include a built-in PDF reader, a new native UI for Firefox Mobile on Android tablets and completely silent background updater.
The update brings enhancements like a personalized start page and a new screen showing all of your browsing history, bookmarks, passwords, and form data. Other enhancements include Flash support for Honeycomb tablet devices, the ability to sync your settings with other devices on which you use Firefox, and new HTML5 capabilities for developers.
