Mozilla Releases Firefox 8

Mozilla just keeps trucking along. Dropping four Firefox versions already this year beginning with Firefox 4 in March, the company has just released the eighth iteration of its famed web browser.

The big change is the inclusion of Twitter as a dropdown option in the Search bar, highlighting the microblogging app’s increasing role as a search engine for real-time results.

As for under the hood updates, the browser reportedly performs better (in other words, uses less of your computer’s memory), specifically when running Flash and rendering 3D by enabling Google MapsGL. Overall, Firefox finally has a sense of polish after having its past few updates rushed in order to keep pace with the likes of Google’s ever-evolving Chrome.
