Another release of the popular Mozilla Firefox browser is out today. Version 49 features significant changes you may or may not like. Let's see what Mozilla developers prepared for us.
Hello is an interesting service Mozilla has in Firefox that provides a WebRTC-based alternative to services like Skype. Mozilla has included it in Firefox for some versions but have now decided to drop the Hello addon from the upcoming Firefox 49. Version 49, which is expected to be released in September, will come without support for Hello. Support for the underlying WebRTC technology itself may remain intact.
Following the release of Firefox 48 beta, Mozilla developers also announced the list of changes we can expect for Firefox 49. Let's see what they are.
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.
