        There will be even more macOS goodness once the graphics team rolls out WebRender by default!

    A lot of improvements in this release. Firefox is incredibly good these days.

    EDIT: If you're looking to additionally harden Firefox against internet tracking (and outright surveillance) you should check out the add-ons and config tweaks recommended by privacytools.io.

      I admit I'm a bit surprised Mozilla lasted this long and has been kicking so much ass lately. When they emerged from the ruins of Netscape I'd never have guessed they'd do this well for this long. I can't imagine using any other browser, because I can't abide the modern web without my firefox addons anymore.

        I used Firefox way back but stopped using them for many years. After starting to using FF again a couple of years ago I could never go back to any other browser (or even browse the internet without my current config and add-ons).

    Interesting to see Chrome and Firefox continue with their removal of encryption status in the address bar - defining that encryption should be a standard by now for webmasters.

    A new crossed-out lock icon will indicate sites delivered via insecure HTTP
    The formerly green lock icon is now grey
    The Extended Validation (EV) indicator has been moved to the identity
    popup that appears when clicking the lock icon

      Troy Hunt will be happy to see EV certs further diminished in stature.
