New Security and Developer Features Now in Firefox

Firefox has new features that make browsing more secure and Web applications like games more powerful.

We automatically make your Google searches secure in Firefox to protect your data from potentially prying eyes, like network administrators when you use public or shared WiFi networks. Google is currently the only search engine that allows Firefox to make your searches private, but we look forward to supporting additional search engines with this feature in the future.

Firefox makes it easier to see a website’s verified identity by changing the way that we display the icon to the left of the URL.

For developers, Firefox now supports Pointer Lock API to allow applications, including first-person games to better control the mouse. Firefox now supports native fullscreen mode on OS X Lion 10.7 for a better experience with videos and Web games like Mozilla’s BrowserQuest.
