Firefox updated to 20.0
An update for firefox, and other Mozilla software, came through yesterday. That brings firefox to version 20.0.
I normally don’t comment on such updates. However, in a recent post, I wrote:
The main feature where I might prefer some other browsers, was with private browsing. Chromium and midori open a separate window for private browsing, and opera opens a separate tab. That allows browsing one site privately at the same time as I am browsing another site in ordinary (non-private) mode.
To my surprise, and a pleasant surprise, firefox private browsing now works that way. The menu entry for private browsing now reads “New Private Window”. And when I select that, a new window opens for private browsing, with the old window still there.
For me, the effect is that I will use private browsing more often. I very much like this change.
The description of the mozilla update mentioned that it included a seamonkey update. However, seamonkey was not updated.
