For those wanting the latest version of Firefox 51.0, Mozilla has released this open-source web-browser for Windows, Mac and Linux. The new version replaces previous stable versions, including Firefox 50.1, which was the last version Mozilla released prior to the Firefox 51 release.
While there are no standout features in this release, it however notably does have support for FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) content, a high-end gaming experience thanks to the implementation of WebGL 2 support, and the ability to view passwords before saving them in the built-in password manager. The users can now also save passwords for forms that don’t have “submit” events. They have also enabled Skia 2D graphics library for content rendering by default in the Linux build too.
Another enhancement delivers improved video performance for users that don’t benefit from any GPU (graphics processing unit) acceleration. Besides using less CPU power, the new Firefox version promises a better full-screen experience.
Firefox 51.0 is available now as a free, open-source download for Windows, Mac and Linux. Further, Firefox for Android 51.0 is also due for release.
