Mozilla Firefox 20 improves private browsing, new download manager

The latest version of Firefox has just released by Mozilla, now available for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android.

The new Firefox 20 improves private browsing, integrates your download window with your toolbar, brings getUserMedia to developers, and offers an overall better user experience. 

The users can open a separate window for private browsing, while the other windows remain unaffected and continue to record browsing history. The new Firefox release comes with a new download manager in the Firefox toolbar, allowing users to monitor, view and locate downloaded files without the need to switch to another window. The download manager is similar to the one offered by the Safari web browser.

In addition to the above features, Firefox for Android adds support for additional devices running on less powerful processor architecture, ARMv6 processors. This means that phones like Samsung Galaxy Next, HTC Aria, HTC Legend, Samsung Dart, Samsung Galaxy Pop and the Samsung Galaxy Q will be able to run Firefox for Android. So the browser extends support to 50 million more phones, according to Mozilla.
