Mozilla have rolled out their new Firefox beta 8 release today, which now includes new features for searching, controlling tabs, and managing add-ons. The new beta is available for download now and supports Windows, Mac and Linux systems.
The latest Firefox 8 beta release includes Twitter as a default search option to make searching #hashtags and @usernames easier. You can also now choose to load tabs only when selected, resulting in faster start-up times when windows with lots of tabs are restored.
Other features including enhanced control of add-ons where you will receive a one-time notification to review and confirm your third party add-ons, allowing you to disable or delete them. When Firefox starts and finds that a third-party program has installed an add-on, Firefox will disable the add-on automatically until you have explicitly opted it in.
