With version 29 of its Firefox browser, Mozilla debuts the Australis interface and a new Accounts function allowing users to synchronize data and settings across multiple devices. All in all, the updates place Firefox more in line with Google Chrome, which is currently the world's most popular browser.
Australis is characterized by its redesigned tabs, which have rounder corners and are brought forward when open, and by an intuitive and customizable menu. Located in the upper right-hand corner, the menu offers quick access to the browser's features, settings and functions (add-ons, history, developer, full screen mode, etc.). On opening the new Firefox for the first time, users will find a short guide to the changes.
The updated Firefox interface is unmistakably similar to that of Google's Chrome. And, like Chrome users, Firefox users can now create an account and sync their bookmarks, passwords and settings in order to access them from any device.
