Firefox recently celebrated her 10th anniversary since its creation and to commemorate this occasion, a special Firefox 33.1 update was released and this release comesmwith some new features which includes some great new privacy options, added DuckDuckGo as a search option, spiffy new look for the newsletter, Enhanced Tiles, Forget Button added, and new firefox looks.
- The new Forget button:
Preserve your privacy with the new Forget button. In just a few clicks, you can wipe out your recent history and personal data from your computer, from the last five minutes to 24 hours, without touching the rest. The Forget button comes in handy if you’re using a public computer and want to clear your information, or if you land on a sketchy website and need to get out of there fast
- DuckDuckGo search:
If searching online privately is important to you, then DuckDuckGo, the search engine without tracking, is now available. DuckDuckGo gives you the great results you expect from your searches — including images, videos and places — all without profiling you or collecting your personal data.
