In comparison with Firefox 70 the upcoming Firefox 71 isn’t going to be an as big update, but it brings a couple of interesting new features, such as a new kiosk mode that allow you to open the web browser directly in full-screen mode without any other distractions. This is mostly useful for companies who want to use on their kiosks and can be enabled via the –kiosk command-line parameter.
Another interesting feature that will land as part of the upcoming Firefox 71 web browser is Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode on Windows systems, which lets users pop a video out of its webpage into a floating window that can be resized and placed on top of all windows and in any part of your desktop.
On top of that, Firefox 71 promises a redesigned about:config internal configuration page, a new, easier to use Certificate Viewer that brings more features and more detailed information, and a new server-timing information in DevTools’ Network panel to allow web developers to analyze server-related timings in the context of other request and response details.
Firefox is scheduled for release on December 3rd.Follow us:
