Firefox 13 Comes Online Early, Now Available for Download

Mozilla continues its torrid pace of releasing new versions of Firefox. Not scheduled for release until tomorrow, what appears to be a final version of Firefox 13 has appeared online.

New features and changes include:

  • When opening a new tab, users are now presented with their most visited pages
  • The default home page now has quicker access to bookmarks, history, settings, and more
  • SPDY protocol now enabled by default for faster browsing on supported sites
  • Restored background tabs are not loaded by default for faster startup
  • Smooth scrolling is now enabled by default

See the full release notes for more.

Grab the download for your platform: WindowsMac, and Linux

    Yes, but it seems the only major browser that values privacy. That's worth a lot. I switched back from Chrome to Firefox!

    They must have fixed it, the link appears to lead to version 12 and when going to download it again says 12.

    I was expecting more updates, but at least Mozilla is on schedule unlike their FF4.

    Bah, I meant more features wit the FF13 compared to FF12. Where's that edit button?
