Firefox 73.0 is out!

The main new feature that I like is the ability to set a default zoom level for all web content, regardless of site.

Give Firefox a chance for a faster, calmer and distraction-free web

Speaking of Firefox, here's a nice profile on Mozilla's pivot to user privacy and the better web:

"Mozilla lost the browser wars. It still thinks it can save the internet"

@markosaric Ah, nice! The global zoom feature was one of my blockers for moving to Firefox.

for older versions there is a plugin that does default zoom and works quite well. But great that it is now part of the standard package.

@humanetech @codewiz yeah i used to have a plugin at one stage or another. i also used CTRL and + a lot but this now makes the whole thing so much easier and more convenient.

@markosaric Lost the browser wars? What nonsense is that?

@Gina @markosaric That'd be Browser Wars 2 btw - if any.

*served in the first


I guess that means that the last of the "browser wars" happened on the mobile field, where Chrome and Safari positions are deeply secured. There is nothing Mozilla can do about it.

Even though Firefox Preview is pure bomb.
