Mozilla rolled out Firefox 34 yesterday. The new browser update comes with new exciting features.
Firefox 34 launches with Yahoo as default search engine
Mozilla has launched its new Firefox browser with Yahoo as the default search engine.
Though it's easy enough to change the default search engine in Firefox, there is the likelihood of users switching back to Google. This is becase, the Yahoo Search experience, which the company specifically tweaked for Firefox users, is perfectly all right for most searches. But at the end of the day, it feels like it doesn’t have some of Google's smarts, especially when it comes to queries that would usually trigger Google's Knowledge Graph.
With yesterday's update, Mozilla is also moving its WebRTC-powered chat tool, "Firefox Hello" out of the beta channel and into its mainstream release. The organization built this service, which allows you to start audio and video chats with other Firefox users right from the browser.
It's quite possible that you may not be able to see it right now, and this is because Mozilla has rate limited access to it in order to prevent the system from getting overloaded. Only about 10 percent of all Firefox users currently see it.
Other updates include an improved search bar for users in the U.S. and the launch of WebIDE in the stable release channel. SSL 3.0, which has a number of known security issues, has been cut from this release.
