Firefox: test pilot program used to test three new browser features




The development team of the Firefox browser continues for some time its own “Tespiloten” program, volunteers enables already to test experimental features and builds well in advance of their possible publication and especially to provide them with feedback because of this there would at end finally to. Now it announces three new functions to be seamlessly integrated into the browser and click on blank, for example YouTube videos in the foreground look further or offer a tracking protection outside the private mode.

Anyone can sign up for the program on the specially created website . It should be mentioned at this point that the user of the English language should be powerful – a German localization is currently unavailable

Using the Test Feature Min Vid example is video above other tabs can appear to look further. So one could while writing mails or during passage rummaging the news that maybe too interesting video simply run in the foreground.

A screenshot of created inclined users often via [Print] button, but can not immediately directly interact with the screen, because this indeed only depends on the time in the buffer memory thereafter. With Page shot you can by clicking Create a Screen and share directly with others if you want. Similarly, a file name can be assigned for this purpose, to which should be searchable via the tool later. Also could be even after the text captured in the screenshot search.


While it is already used to getting offered in the private mode of Firefox a Tracking Protection, this can now be offered with Tracking Protection during normal browsing.

Whoever encounters during testing of the features on errors that disturb him in the work flow, may also simply disable the test pilot tools and activate later.
