Firefox 100 release from Mozilla

Mozilla Foundation, the nonprofit organization behind longtime best web browser rival Chrome, has reached its update milestone after releasing its version 100, according to a report by The register.

The outlet noted in its report that Mozilla has yet to talk about the latest update to its flagship web browsers, but it is officially available for download.

It seems Mozilla still has no plans to officially release Firefox version 100. Despite this, it is already available on the FTP non-profit organization website.

In fact, there are different versions of Firefox 100 for different platforms, such as Linux, Apple’s macOS, and Microsoft’s Windows. The latter has the choice between two options: 64 bits or 32 bits.

The registry also noted that the three-digit version of the Mozilla web browser is also available for those still running Windows 7. However, it strictly requires them to install a specific Microsoft KB4474419 update before they can install it.

A desktop screen in an office in Bangkok on June 25, 2013 shows the homepage of the Mozilla Firefox browser with a message for its users that reads: ‘Security and privacy are not optional. Join a broad coalition to demand that the NSA stop watching us: stopwatching.us.”

It turns out that the latest version of Chrome‘s rival not only sports an extra digit on its version number, but also comes with some new features to brag about.

It’s been nearly two decades since Mozilla launched its flagship web browser in 2004. Yet the Foundation continues to deliver exciting new features to delight its old and new users alike.

This comes even though Firefox is struggling to keep up with Chrome’s popularity these days. Not to mention that built-in browsers, such as Safari and Edge, also continue to attract millions of users.

Without further ado, here are the new features that Firefox 100 has in store for its users, which should help it keep pace with other competitors like Chrome.

Mozilla is rolling out a new feature that should come in handy for avid viewers of giant video streaming platforms, YouTube, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video. Firefox 100 adds subtitle support for picture-in-picture playback.

Users of smartphones with Firefox 100 installed should benefit from better tab management, as well as a new HTTPS-only mode. There are also new wallpapers for the mobile web browser.
