Firefox 12 For Windows, Mac And Linux Now Available For Free – Download Now
Similar to the Google Chrome, now a days Mozilla opting to release newer versions of its popular browser at the sparkling speed, it’s didn’t surprise me to see version 12 being released today. Yes! 5 weeks back Firefox 11 dropped for Windows, Mac and Linux.
This Firefox 12, as new enhancements include updates to the browser, add line numbers to the source page and included several improvements. When you go back to past, users of Mozilla’s popular browser wouldn’t see a version update for several months at a time, but since the six week update cycle came into effect a year ago, the version number has leapfrogged from 4 to 12.
As i said above Google’s Chrome browser also operates a similar update program like Firefox, and with both commanding a similar market share, the Mozilla team is desperately trying to remain relevant, although the momentum is firmly behind the Big G’s comparatively young browser.
Version 12 is ready for download, but it hasn’t – as yet – officially been released to the public. As has frequently been the case during the past 12 months, there aren’t any significant changes to note, although as ever, it is strongly recommended you grab the latest version, to which we’ve provided official download links to at the bottom of this post.
Upto me i am a Windows-running Firefox surfer, there’s no User Account Control prompting whenever you wish to update, making it slightly quicker for you to get your next update when it surfaces – probably late next month. Improvements have been made to the “Find in Page” function, while URLs pasted into the download manager window will now be automatically downloaded. For those still running Windows 2000, Windows XP RTM or XP Service Pack 1, Firefox 12 will be the last iteration to officially support them, leaving only those running Windows XP SP2 and above with the privilege of using Firefox 13 and beyond.
I haven’t tested yet, and if you did and discovered any bugs, then please feel free to drop us a comment and we will be updating more improvements and about supporting add-ons soon. Check out these direct links and grab them for your operating systems.
