Firefox Browser for Android updated to version 31 – what’s new?

July 22, 2014

Firefox for Android

While most Android/Google fans prefer Chrome, having options is also a privilege we often tout. Firefox Browser for Android is one of the most popular third-party browsers in the Google Play Store, making the latest update to version 31 a topic of interest to many of our readers.

What’s new? To be honest, most of the improvements are hidden away in the background, but you are getting a couple very cool new features. First in the list is the ability to re-order panels in the browser’s home screen, allowing you to further customize your browser to your liking.

Another addition you will quickly notice is the ability to refresh synced tabs manually. This was done automatically until today, which could prove to be cumbersome if you want to see changes right away. Users can now drag down on the Sync section to refresh. A few locales have also been added, including Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Panjabi, Tamil and Telugu.

Other background changes include:

  • Removal of CAPS infrastrutcture
  • WebVTT implemented and enabled
  • CSS3 variables implemented
  • New Array built-in: Array.prototype.fill

Also important to note is that this browser still isn’t optimized for Android L. In fact, those using the Android L Preview will find Firefox is unable to start at all, while running Google’s latest software.

Now that you know what Mozilla has for you, downloading Firefox 31 is as simple as always. Go to the Google Play Store to grab your update or download the app!

      I’ve made $80,000 so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. Im using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it.
