Firefox is just launched new desktop version of Firefox for windows, Mac, Android and Linux. Here is some awsome features provided by Mozilla 8.

Built-in twitter search
The new version of Firefox adds Twitter as a search option. Twitter is now included as a search option in Firefox. Twitter search in Firefox makes it easier to discover new topics, #hashtags and @usernames. Users can select Twitter in the search query box to restrict queries to tweets.

Disable add-ons
Firefox 8 has also added a feature to enhance security and privacy. Firefox is now disabling add-ons installed by third parties without permission and asking the user to pick the ones which should be enabled. According to Mozilla blog, “At Mozilla, we think you should be in control, so we are disabling add-ons installed by third parties without your permission and letting you pick the ones you want to keep.”

CORS support
Firefox 8 also adds support for a WebGL security feature. It adds support for Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS), which lets developers load WebGL textures from other domains in a secure way. WebGL is a new Web standard that allows websites and Web apps to display hardware-accelerated 3D graphics without third-party software.

Mozilla claims Firefox 8 to be faster than previous versions with improved support for HTML5 and WebGL.

Tabs on demand
Firefox 8 allows users to load tabs on demand, making it much faster to restore windows with many tabs. Users can enable this option in the Firefox Menu, under Options/Preferences, in the General tab.
