Mozilla has updated Firefox to version 12 for desktop, and the new browser is now available to download for Windows, Mac and Linux device now, bringing some serious elbow-grease to its developer tools. The company claims that the latest iteration of the browser includes no fewer than 85 improvements to its built-in developer tools, and a number of other updates that improve the experience of those that use the browser.
The company says it has “put a lot of work” into Firefox 12. One change highlighted is that you still have to you approve the User Account Control (UAC) the first time you install Firefox, but for all subsequent versions, it will automatically update without your approval. This is the same update procedure that Google Chrome has been using on Windows for more than a year with few if any known negative consequences.
