Firefox improves porn mode -

Big cheeses in the Mozzarella Foundation have lifted the kimono on a new version of Firefox which ships in improvements for the dedicated followers of secretly buying presents or, er, internet porn.

Firefox fine-tuned its private browsing mode, which now comes with a better download manager, and multiple changes to its backend.

Updates now allow you to run a private browsing session in a new window, alongside a standard Firefox browsing window and you can run private mode tabs next to standard session tabs.

For those who came in late, private browsing turns off all the browser's session recording features, including cookies, history, and temporary files.

If your plug-ins break visiting a dodgy site, a helpful update will ask if you'd like to restart plug-ins that have been frozen for more than 45 seconds.

Also useful is the new Download Manager. Instead of having to open a separate window to access downloads, the new one appears in your toolbar next to the location bar. It also shows download progress in the toolbar.

The browser, when run on Android, now lets you save web shortcuts to your phone's home screen, making it much quicker to get to frequently visited sites. It will also run on older Android phones running on ARMv6. The browser will now work on Android devices with 384MB of RAM and QVGA displays.

On both versions, the browser now supports getUserMedia, which can record from your webcam or mic in the browser. The getUserMedia Application Programming Interface provides a part of Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC), which is expected to allow browsers to communicate directly with each other for voice calling, file-sharing, and video chats.
