We'd like to extend a special thank you to all of the new Mozillians who contributed to this release of Firefox.
At Mozilla, we believe you have a right to privacy. You shouldn’t be tracked online. Whether you are checking your bank balance, looking for the best doctor, or shopping for shoes, unscrupulous tracking companies should not be able to track you as you browse the Web. For that reason, we are continuously working to harden Firefox against online tracking of our users.
- Firefox now protects you from supercookies, a type of tracker that can stay hidden in your browser and track you online, even after you clear cookies. By isolating supercookies, Firefox prevents them from tracking your web browsing from one site to the next.
- It’s easier than ever to save and access your bookmarks. Firefox now remembers your preferred location for saved bookmarks, displays the bookmarks toolbar by default on new tabs, and gives you easy access to all of your bookmarks via a toolbar folder.
- The password manager now allows you to remove all of your saved logins with one click, as opposed to having to delete each login individually.
- Various security fixes.
- Firefox no longer supports Adobe Flash. There is no setting available to re-enable Flash support.
- Various bug fixes and new policies have been implemented in the latest version of Firefox. You can see more details in the Firefox for Enterprise 85 Release Notes.
Espero que estejas enganado.
Mas se vier mesmo a acontecer, ficará por cá instalada a última versão que estiver disponível aquando do falecimento. Tudo o resto é baseado em Chromium ou Safari para quem tem Mac.
A web vive de standards. E o Chromium é um standard. Se bem que é um standard nas mãos de uma gigante e isso tem de mudar. Não há mal de o motor de renderização ser um standard, como o é o HTML5 e que matou o Flash.
Essa comparação não faz sentido nenhum.
A web "vive" de standards, sim. Web standards. Coisa que nenhum motor de renderização é. E ainda bem. É na competição que existe variedade, melhoria e inovação.
