Mozilla becomes the first web browser which gets the support of WebGL 2 standards. Developers are now open to use the 3D graphics which are present for the first on the web. Content creators get a whole lot of new rendering features including transform feedback, expanded texturing functionality, and multisample rendering support. WebGL 2 full features are now available for Windows, MacOS, Linux.
Just like Google, Mozilla has also started giving marks to non-secure websites. HTTPS secured websites enable users to have safe browsing experience by encrypting the connection. Earlier, Mozilla was using green color lock icon in the URL bar to indicate whether a website is secured. Otherwise, using a neutral indicator to indicate an unsecured website. To ensure safety, Mozilla has now started denoting unsecured web pages or websites with a gray lock icon with a red strike-through in the URL bar.
1. Secure HTTPS connection
2. Non-secure HTTP connection
Including all these new features, Mozilla has also come up with the multi-process Firefox to desktop users. Developers at Mozilla are determined to make Firefox more responsive and faster. Now Firefox runs in two processes including one for the browser’s user interface and another for web page content.
Mozilla disclosed in its official blog that in the new release there are a lot of new things for developers including IndexedDB 2, a big upgrade to a powerful standard API for local storage.
