Hello everyone, how are you all doing today? I hope you are all having a great start to your weekend. My Friday so far is going pretty well, I just opened a beer, what more can I ask for now? Lol anyway, today we will focus on the brand new FireFox 37 browser for Linux, read on…

Mozilla has launched the latest iteration of its Firefox browser, bringing it to version number 37 for both desktop (Windows, OS X, and Linux) and Android platforms.

Firefox 37 introduces some tweaks in the URL bar, adds new locales, and improves download performance and more, as per Firefox’s release notes for desktop and mobile.

As for the desktop platform, the Firefox 37 browser version now sets Yandex as the default search engine for the Turkish locale, while Bing search will now be using HTTPS for secure searching. Fake and fraud websites are also better handled by the browser’s new OneCRL centralised certificate revocation. The company has also added a new Heartbeat (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Advocacy/heartbeat) user rating system for users to provide feedback about Firefox.
