Final Release of Firefox 11 Hits Mozilla’s FTP Servers

Final Release of Firefox 11 Hits Mozilla’s FTP Servers

The latest version of Firefox is set to be released this Tuesday, March 13th. However, the final version of Firefox 11 has been uploaded to Mozilla’s FTP servers for immediate download. This new version of Firefox comes with changes like Add-on syncing between computers and importing data from Google’s Chrome browser along with a few smaller changes. If you can’t wait to grab the new version on Tuesday, we have the download links after the break!

What’s New?

There aren’t a lot of changes that were made to Firefox 11. I mean, how can you change something that’s already perfect? Ahh, just kidding. Let’s take a look at some of the bigger changes below.

Import Data From Chrome

Perhaps the most notable change in Firefox 11 is the ability to import bookmarks, history, and cookies from Google Chrome. After installing Firefox 11, go to your Bookmark Library and select the Import and Backup button > Import Data from Another Browser. You’ll know have the option to import data from Chrome instead of just Internet Explorer as that was the only option in the past.

Sync Add-Ons with Firefox Sync

If you use Firefox across multiple computers, you can now sync your Add-ons between said computers. Add-on syncing is checked on by default, so if you don’t want to sync your Add-ons, be sure to go to your Options menu and the Sync menu to turn it off.

There are a few other smaller changes like the CSS text-size-adjust property now being supported and the SPDY protocol support for faster page loads is able to be tested by developers.

Download Firefox 11

If these changes are starting to sound good, head over to Mozilla’s official FTP server and start downloading Firefox 11 now. The update will officially be out on Tuesday, but I know you just can’t help yourself when it comes to getting things before others ;) . Hit the direct download links below to start upgrading now.
