Firefox 20 Adds Improvements To Private Browsing, Download Manager

Mozilla’s Firefox 19 may have been released just over a month ago, but that hasn’t stopped the team from releasing a new update to its popular web browser as Firefox 20 has been released this week and those of you who enjoy your “private browsing” time might want to download the update immediately.

Before Firefox 20, users who wanted to initiate private browsing, which allows you to surf without Firefox remembering your browsing history, cookies or autofill entries, would have to browse privately with every tab opened within Firefox. In Firefox 20, Mozilla has made it possible to specify which windows you open will be private or regular, allowing you to mix and match if need be.

Firefox 20 also introduces an improved download manager that will now live in the browser’s toolbar, making it much easier to interact with as you previously had to open a separate window in order to access your downloads. Support for WebRTC’s getUserMedia function as well as a larger support for Android devices round out the full list of updates you can expect in the latest version of Firefox.
