Here is a new release of the popular Firefox 48 browser. This is the first release where you cannot disable add-on signature enforcement. Here is what's new in version 48.
Firefox is getting a new Get Add-ons page. With version 48, the browser comes with a different add-ons page which is more clear at introducing what themes and extensions are. It also has a live preview with videos.
Earlier, we noted that developers are going to enable multiprocess mode, known as process-per-tab or electrolysis (e10s) for 1% of users who do not use add-ons. Unlike the release version, Firefox 48 beta comes with electrolysis enabled for everyone.
Firefox 48, which is currently in the beta stage, is expected to be released to stable branch users in August 2016. A notable change Mozilla developers are going to enable by default in this release is the multiprocess mode, known as "electrolysis" or just e10s. This will be enabled for at least some users.
With the next few upcoming releases, Mozilla Firefox will get a refined bookmarks UI. Developers from Mozilla are working to make it more logical and easy to use for the end user. This will affect the "star" button behavior and the appearance of the bookmarks menu in the browser.
A new interesting feature is going to be introduced in Firefox 48. It will get a Narrate option for the Reader view. Once the user enters this mode, he can enable the speech synthesizer, which will read aloud the page content for you using a computerized voice. Let's explore this feature in detail.
