Firefox 105 is available: the list of new features

Mozilla offers for download firefox 105 in its stable version. Some new features are to be found with this update of the Internet browser, this is the opportunity to discover them.

Here are the main new features of Firefox 105 according to Mozilla:

  • Added an option to print only the current page in the print preview dialog.
  • Firefox now supports partitioned service workers in third-party contexts. You can register service workers in a third party iframe and it will be partitioned under the top level domain.
  • The “Swipe to navigate” function (two fingers on a touchpad swiped left or right to go back or forward) is now available on Windows.
  • Firefox now conforms to the User Timing L3 specification, which adds additional optional arguments to the performance.mark and performance.measure methods to provide custom start and end times, duration, and attached details.
  • Searching for individual items in large lists is now twice as fast. This performance improvement replaces array.includes and array.indexOf with an optimized SIMD version.

On the other hand, Mozilla says it has succeeded in significantly reducing the number of out-of-memory browser crashes on Windows. Also, touchpad scrolling on macOS has been made more accessible by reducing unintended diagonal scrolling away from the intended scroll axis. As for Linux, the software is less likely to run out of memory and runs more efficiently when memory is low.

Firefox 105 is available for download on the Mozilla website.
