Firefox 13 released, new Home page included
Ahead of its official release, Mozilla has uploaded Firefox 13 FINAL to its servers, the latest version of its open-source, cross-platform web browser. Version 13 will be officially unveiled on June 5th, when it should also become available as an update to existing Firefox users.
Version 13 is a landmark release, containing a number of major new features: redesigned home and new tab pages, support for “tabs on demand” loading of pages on restoring the previous browsing session to speed up startup, and a new Reset Firefox feature for attempting to fix major problems with a single click.
The most visible new feature in Firefox 13 is its new Home page, one of the many interface changes implemented by the Firefox UX development team. This new Home page – accessible by typing about:home into the Address bar – provides users with the ability to create their own customised home page, with shortcuts to bookmarks, downloads, add-ons, history, sync, settings and an option for restoring the previous session. Users are presented with the option of using this home page when setting up Firefox 13 for the first time.
