Mozilla Firefox 72 is released with Picture in Picture feature and more

Browser developed by Mozilla, comes in version 72 with several improvements and PiP feature natively.

As we reported late last year (2019), Firefox version 72 would come with the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) option and would first be available for Windows. Now it's finally been released to Linux and macOS. Mozilla Firefox 72 released with Picture in Picture feature and more

In this version, in addition to PiP, some features have been improved, especially in the area of ??security and privacy, which according to their announcement are:

Firefox's Enhanced Tracking Protection marks an important new step in our battle against cross-site tracking: we now block the fingerprinting scripts by default for all users, taking a bold new step in fight for the privacy of our users;

Firefox replaces annoying notification request pop-ups with a more enjoyable experience by default for all users. Pop-ups no longer interrupt your browsing. Instead, a speech bubble will appear in the address bar when you interact with the site;

Support for blocking images of individual domains has been removed due to low usage and poor user experience;

The PiP feature is already enabled natively for the three desktop platforms, Linux, macOS and Windows. To activate quite simply, an option will appear when you hover over the player. This hourly function is only available for YouTube and Netflix.

This version is coming to the Linux distro repositories soon (maybe some have already arrived), but if you want to download and try it, the download link is here. This article does not end here, keep exchanging an idea there in our forum. Hope to see you next, a big hug.
