Built with your security in mind, Firefox keeps your computer safe from malicious spyware by not loading harmful ActiveX controls. A comprehensive set of privacy tools keep your online activity your business.

Thanks to <span style="color: red;">sternog</span> for the update.

Some really good improvements in this release, well worth running over 19 provided everything that was in there in a2 is still there.

Just installed Firefox 20.0 Beta 1. Seems to work fine but the "Restart Firefox" add on does not work.

How about this one? :)

Thanks for the notice. I skipped 19.0 Final to try this release as my first test of Beta. All seems fine and stable so far.

I wish Firefox would at least match Chrome speed. I prefer Firefox's features and addons over Chrome's, but Firefox starts to run sluggish, slow, and laggy for me fast unlike Chrome.

Private browsing under Tools isn't there in this Beta release? Is there no private browsing mode for/in Beta, or was it also removed from the latest stable 19.0 Final?

I find Firefox as speedy as Chrome in my usage. ;)

At one time, Opera was the fastest. Soon, Opera will put on the Chrome engine. :p

Now they are all about the same speed. ;)

Firefox button (or File button) > New Private Window?

Also, now, right click any link > Open Link in New Private Window. :)

Also, if you pin FF to your taskbar, you can directly 'Open New Private Window' from the swipe menu that comes up. You have to have "browser.taskbar.lists.tasks.enabled" set to "True" for that in about:config ;)

Firefox's cold startup speed is still way too slow in Win7, but has improved a lot over the years both on Win8 and Ubuntu. Anyone who runs build 19/20 on Win or Ubuntu QQ will testify to that :yes:

As for rendering speeds, there is hardly any difference any more these days for all practical purposes. With every passing year, how fast your page opens on your monitor has less to do with your browser and more to do with your connection speed. On a 21st century high speed broadband connection (if available and affordable in your region), you won't notice any real world difference between IE, FF, Chrome, Opera, or Safari ;)
