A published list of Firefox development ideas currently in progress

Community Engagement Manager at Mozilla published list of future improvements in Firefox, which the developers have already begun to implement:

  • Grouping tabs.
  • The ability to place a list of tabs vertically and a modernized sidebar.
  • A new profile management system that allows you to separate different types of activities (for example, study, work, personal interests), but at the same time make them easily accessible (developing the idea of ​​​​quickly switching between profiles).
  • Support for customizing the page background shown when opening a new tab. You can set any picture as the background or change the color.
  • Intuitive privacy settings that make it easier to manage features related to preventing tracking of a user's movements between sites.
  • Menu redesign aimed at focusing on the most important elements, reducing visual clutter and highlighting priority actions.
  • Continued work on optimizing performance, reducing page loading times, speeding up startup, and reducing power consumption during battery life. It is noted that the work already done has made it possible to improve the performance of the Speedometer 3 test by 20%.
  • Project Interopaimed at improving cross-browser compatibility, providing consistent support for web technologies across browsers, identifying differences in browser behavior, and making it easier to create sites that work across all browsers.
  • Integration of capabilities related to artificial intelligence, the models for which are executed on the local system without recourse to external services. For example, next quarter Firefox will add support for generating text descriptions for images inside PDF documents, making it easier for people with vision impairments to work with information.
