This release introduces several enhancements to make the popular and open source web browser more reliable, stable, and easy to use while improving productivity.

A key feature of the Firefox 61 release is the ability to switch between tabs a lot faster than on previous versions of the web browser. However, this improvement was only implemented on Windows and Linux platforms. In addition, Firefox 61 is easier access to more search engines in the address bar for all platforms.

“You can now add search engines to the address bar ‘Search with’ tool from the page action menu when on a webpage that provides an OpenSearch plugin,” said Mozilla. On the other hand, Mac users can now share links more easily from the Page Actions menu in the address bar.

The Firefox 61 web browser also improves security by enabling support for the latest draft of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.3 specification and by restricting access to FTP (File Transfer Protocol) subresources found inside HTTP and HTTPS web pages.
