Mozilla has updated the Firefox browser to build 34, the new build comes with some new features and the most important and significant change is that the default search provider is now Yahoo, not Google. You might already know that Mozilla has had a deal with Yahoo and according to that Mozilla will switch default search provider in Firefox browser from Google to Yahoo.
Mozilla has released Firefox 34 build yesterday and users who are using the en-US builds will see the Yahoo as default search engine. The change will happen automatically to users who have not changed their default search engine in Firefox. For those who have changed the default search provider in Firefox, Mozilla will ask them if they want to switch. When i updated Firefox to 34, it didn’t change the search provider from Google to Yahoo.
Another important feature bundled in this Firefox build is the “Firefox Hello”, chat client that is based on webRTC protocol. The Hello chat client works on browsers that support webRTC, including Firefox, Chrome and Opera. Although it works on other browsers at least one user should be using Firefox at any given time for communication. The Hello client is already available in the beta channel but now it is officially pushed to stable builds. This chat client doesn’t require special plugins to the browser. It allows users to communicate with other users using video, audio etc.
SSL 3.0 support has been disabled in this build for security, other features include improved search bar and more. You can find the release notes for the desktop version here.
Firefox for Android has also been updated in this release, the most notable feature her is the mirroring support for the Chromecast stick. Like in desktop here also support fort SSL 3.0 has been disabled. Release notes for the Firefox Android version can be found here.
