We reported earlier today that Xiaomi has released a new update for the popular Mi Browser. However, it looks like Xiaomi isn’t the only one that has decided to give its fans a Christmas present. The reason why we are saying that is because Mozilla has just started rolling out a new update for Firefox Lite. This is the lightweight version of Mozilla Firefox and despite weighing in at only 6 MB, the browser still offers fast web surfing experiences and a plethora of features.
Firefox Lite 2.1.2 (17721) Update
One of the things that make Firefox Lite stand out is the fact that the browser is updated on a regular basis with software improvements. The latest update sports the 2.1.2 (17721) version number and it has been released earlier this morning. The update introduces a bunch of bug fixes that are tackling various issues which sometimes slowed down the performances.
Now that we have checked out the latest update for Firefox Lite, let’s go ahead and take a look at what are the best features that the lightweight browser has to offer.
