After the release of the stable version of Firefox 70, Mozilla has started the development of the next major version, and Mozilla Firefox 71.0 has entered the Beta test phase.
Although the Mozilla Firefox 71.0 update is not very large, it brings some interesting new features. Such as the new kiosk mode, which opens the web browser directly in full screen without any disturbing elements. This applies to the kiosk and can be enabled via the –kiosk command line parameter.
Another interesting feature of Firefox 71 is the picture-in-picture mode in Windows, which allows video elements on the page to pop up into a floating window.
You can resize the window and set it to “keep in the top” state. Located in front of all desktop windows, it will not be obscured by other windows.
Most importantly, Firefox 71 promises to redesign the about:config internal configuration page. It bringing more features and more detailed information through the Certificate Viewer, introducing new server-timing information in the development tool’s web panel. Allowing the web developer to analyze the service-related timing of other requests and response details.
The stable version of Firefox 71 will release on December 3.
Now, the Beta version for GNU/Linux, macOS and Windows can now be downloaded via the FTP server.
