Firefox 64 Brings Improved Tab Management, Native Sharing on Windows 10

Posted on December 11, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows 10 with 8 Comments

Mozilla today released Firefox 64 to all users. The update brings a bunch of new features, though most of them aren’t anything major.

The big new change here is the new tab management features. You can now select multiple tabs (CTRL+Shift+click) from the tab bar and move them around, close, bookmark, or pin very quickly. The feature is a bit confusing to use at first, though once you get used to it, things do get much better and quicker.

The update brings improved performance for those on Mac and Linux, thanks to the new link-time optimization tech that landed on Windows with Firefox 63. The update also introduces a new Task Manager feature, accessible from about:performance that details exactly how much energy is used by each of the tabs you have open.

And on Windows 10, the update brings support for the native sharing experience — so when you now share a webpage from Firefox, it will now open the native share sheet in Windows 10, letting you use features like Nearby Share, for example.

There are a bunch of other minor changes included in Firefox 64, so make sure to check out the full changelog if you are a Firefox user.
