Mozilla rolled out its next iteration of Firefox with a handful of new features designed to improve workflow and speed things up.
One of five new features in version 105 (opens in new tab) The browser’s improved print interface now allows users to print the current page more easily, which could be handy for companies that print individual emails rather than entire threads.
Mozilla has also improved the user experience for trackpad users, finally catching up with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. On Windows, users can now swipe with two fingers to navigate between page histories instead of pressing the back and forward buttons.

Firefox now not only supports partitioned service workers in third-party contexts and conforms to the User Timing L3 specification, but is also twice as fast when searching for individual items in large lists.
While every other browser appears to be based on the open-source Chromium project, Firefox says that using its own Quantum browser engine allows it to “ensure your data is treated respectfully and is kept private.” According to an article on Mozilla’s website, some advantages of opting for Firefox include blocking third-party tracking cookies, cryptomining scripts, and social trackers by default.
Further updates have been made across the board, with Firefox now handling low memory situations better in Windows, having less memory available for Linux, and performing better when memory is running low.
Mac users will also notice improvements in trackpad usability, as unintended diagonal scrolling is ironed out a bit.
Firefox version 105 is now available for download or upgrade for Windows 7 or later, macOS 10.12 Sierra or later, and eligible Linux computers. Full system requirements are made available on the Firefox website. Version 105 for mobile devices was also made available with fewer feature releases, but with a focus on stability and technical improvements.
