Firefox 11 Syncs Add-ons, Migrates more Data from Chrome

On the release update channel, Mozilla’s popular Firefox browser has been updated from version 10 to version 11. The interesting thing about this latest version is that it comes with enhanced syncing capabilities, improved import data from Chrome capabilities, and that it adds new in-product developer tools.

Thanks to the Sync feature in Firefox 10, you could sync your bookmarks, passwords, preferences, history, and tabs between multiple platforms. With Firefox 11 you can sync all of these and you can also sync your add-ons. So if you install an add-on on your work computer, it will be synced to your home computer as well (assuming that you only use Sync on your work and home computers).

On top of enhanced syncing capabilities, the Firefox 11 update also brings with it improved import data from Chrome capabilities. What I mean to say by that is that Firefox 11 can migrate your bookmarks, history, and cookies from Google’s web browser.

And last but not least, Firefox 11 comes with new in-product developer tools that make it easier to visualize page elements. With Firefox 11 web developers can visualize a web page in 3D using the Page Inspector 3D view (a new WebGL-based website visualization tool that highlights the structure of a page better than a flat view) and they can use the new Style Editor tool (edit CSS stylesheets like a text editor and see changes instantly). The CSS text-size-adjust property is also supported by Firefox 11.

If you would like to get Firefox 11 for Windows, you can download it straight from FindMySoft here.

If you are already on Firefox 10, you should get an automated update prompt. Alternatively you can manually trigger an update from Help -> About Firefox.
