You will find some noticeable changes with the new interface that were intended to save space. The bar used for your open tabs has now been moved to the top of your Firefox window, with the navigation bar directly below it. These changes were designed to optimize the workspace for laptops. Options are still available to switch things back to the way that you prefer. There is also a cool mini app tab bar for sites you keep open all the time. To create your app tab just right click on a tab you want and then click pin to app tab. Everything else is slightly more streamlined, and there is a bit more room for browsing.
The concept of tabbed browsing has become so popular that Firefox has finally decided to expand the idea. The tab panorama option offers a tab organization window that you can use to sort your tabs and see them as a thumbnail preview. You can also use this new feature as a type of to-do list by sorting your tabs in a priority based order. Even categorize your tabs into groups with only specified groups showing in the tab bar at any given time. To create more than one tab group in your panorama interface just drag an open tab thumbnail into the empty space around the tab group window.
Now you can keep your passwords, history, bookmarks, tabs and your preferences synchronized between multiple computers with new built in features. You can also keep your information synchronized on mobile devices such as Android. These features are just some of the highlights of the new release, so if these are the features that you have been waiting for download Firefox 4 immediately because you won't be disappointed.
