Firefox 13 Beta Available for Testing

Mozilla has completed the merge on Firefox 13 on to the Beta channel on April 26th. New stuff in Firefox 13 Beta includes:

  • Redesigned Home Page: The Home Page now gives you easy access to Bookmarks, History, Settings, Add-ons, Downloads and Sync Preferences with one-click shortcuts.
  • Redesigned New Tab page: When you open a new tab, you can easily get to your most recently and frequently visited sites.
  • Tabs on Demand: Firefox loads tabs on demand when you restore a previous session, which makes it faster to restart Firefox windows with many tabs.
  • SPDY Support: Firefox Beta now supports SPDY by default.
