The newest Firefox is faster, better, and its parent group is well financed, but is it this version, Firefox 9.01, good enough to win back fickle Web browser users? In this gallery you can take a look at some of the newest features of Firefox.

Firefox, unlike Chrome, continues on with a default menu bar and windows for both Web addresses and searches. Click here to read the full review of the new Firefox 9.01.

Want interesting new Firefox feature is that the Add-ons Manager now combines an app. store with tabs that will let you check on your extensions and plugin status.

For example, you can check to see what plugins you have on your system, whether they're active or not, and if they're up to date.

If your plugins aren't up to date, you can update them one by one. There's no option to update all your plugins.

Firefox also now lets you sync your bookmarks, passwords and so on via a secure server. Oddly, it doesn't let you sync plugins and extensions the way Chrome will.
