Firefox 89 Brings Major Redesign and Multi-Touch Support

The latest version of the Firefox browser for Windows and Mac introduces a redesigned user interface with Mac-focused usability improvements as well. Version 89 is now available to download from Mozilla’s website, while the release notes are here.

The UI has been “redesigned and modernized” with floating tabs, with more information when you hover over them, and audio controls, and has a simplified toolbar with lighter iconography, more consistent styling and the removal of less frequently used actions.

Menus have been re-organised to be easier to navigate, and will use the native context menu design on macOS, with the much-needed support for dark mode finally here.

Firefox now supports multi-touch on Mac, with the ability to tap with two fingers on a trackpad, and or a single finger on the Magic Mouse, to zoom into part of a webpage. Browsers like Chrome, Edge and Safari already offer this.
