Firefox 4 introduces Panorama and Sync

Under - Miscellaneous, Technology, Usability

Firefox offering some new incredible features in its upcoming version 4. One of the new features is Firefox Panorama (formerly known as Tab Candy) which provides an excellent way of organizing tabs for someone like me who keeps at least 3 dozen tabs opened at any time. I think it is one of the best browser features after tabbed browsing itself.

Another feature that I liked is browser settings synchronization on multiple devices for bookmarks, open tabs, passwords and history. I’ve been using Xmarks to sync my bookmarks and opened tabs but with this built-in function, I’d be less worried about keeping things organized on one browser at least.

There are several new under-the-hood improvements and features such as support for multi-touch and WebM in addition to HTML5 and CSS3 but no word on improving memory usage though. Firefox 4 beta can be downloaded from here.

Web browser choice matters.

…Web browser has become one of the most critical and trusted relationships of our modern lives – with nearly perfect knowledge of everything we do. It is the lens through which we look at the virtual world, and the medium by which we connect, learn, share, and collaborate. The browser you choose is responsible for providing you with the necessary tools to manage your online life, and to protect your privacy and security.

…In accordance with a landmark settlement (European Commission and Microsoft), if you’re using a Windows PC in Europe and you’re still using the default Web browser (Internet Explorer), in the coming weeks and months you’ll see a Browser Choice screen appear. That screen will provide you the opportunity to make an active choice in the source of the software that acts on your behalf to broker your online experiences, and meet your own unique needs and interests.
