NON-PROFIT SOFTWARE OUTFIT Mozilla gave a demonstration of the desktop and mobile versions of its upcoming web browser Firefox 4 to The INQUIRER at CeBIT.
In the video above you'll see a guide through what is hopefully the last beta version of Firefox 4, beta12. In a bid to rival Google's Chrome and stay ahead of Microsoft's IE8, the Mozilla's latest browser includes new features and is much faster than the previous version.
New features include a redesigned, more minimalist approach to the look and layout of the web browser that looks similar to Chrome. App tabs allow you to pin the websites you often visit so that they load and log you in when you open the browser.
Tab grouping is a productivity feature that means you can arrange groups of different tabs, for example a group for work tabs and a group for personal tabs, and switch between them easily. This negates the need to have different browser windows for various groups of websites.
Also in the video, The INQUIRER was shown the mobile version of Firefox for use on Android devices, which can be synchronised with your desktop to mirror all your bookmarks and settings. µ
