Mozilla has upgraded the nightly channel of Firefox to a newer version, the Firefox 14. The scheduled release date of Firefox 14 as final stable version is 17th July 2012, and along with the regular version, Mozilla may release a metro version of Firefox 14 for Windows 8 users as well.
The current build of Firefox 14 is almost similar to the last nightly build (Firefox 13), which has been migrated to the Aurora channel now. Aurora channel is another experimental build for advanced users interested in testing latest features added to the Firefox. Of course, Aurora channel is much stable than the nightly builds.
New Features of Firefox 14
It is too early to mention upcoming new features of Firefox 14, still we hope to see features like Opt-in activation for plug-ins (aimed to disable unknown, slow or insecure plugins which shouldn’t be allowed to run without user’s specific permission), Panel-based Download Manager, Windows start-up performance improvements (aimed to leverage Windows maintenance service to improve start-up time), Speedy session restore at startup, Smooth scrolling using the smoothwheel algorithm, new button to reset and migrate to a clean Firefox profile, new nightly icon etc. There should be some new exciting developer tools as well.
