Mozilla Firefox came out with a new rolling update to their already powerful browser. However with Chrome’s shares going up and Firefox’s going down, will this update make more users stay with firefox?

Here is a list of new things in Firefox 11:

Firefox can now migrate your bookmarks, history, and cookies from Google Chrome

Now if you are wanting to switch from chrome to firefox, they have made it extremely easy to do so now. This is good, because some people who started out with chrome or who have been using chrome for sometime now and want to switch back to firefox will definitely want to keep all their information from one browser to the next.

With Sync enabled, add-ons can now be synchronized across your computers

Not only can your bookmarks be synced across multiple computers, you can sync all your addons. this is a great advantage to those who have multiple computers. Although I must admit I have not been using this feature, I do want to start using it.

Bug Fixes

  • Various security fixes
  • Firefox notifications may not work properly with Growl 1.3 or later (691662)

 

I must say, this update didn’t really bring too much to the table. However, looking at what is coming for this year, I am excited to see the new updates! I can not use another browser, unless firefox becomes too slow to use. which for me, has not happened.
