Mozilla Firefox 89 offers a new interface that is much more pleasant to use

In this update available since June 1, Mozilla has bet on a clearer and more refined design for version 89 of its orange furry browser. Significant improvements have been made to tabs, hamburger menu, and notifications for using a device.

Firefox 89 is here. This update is mainly based on small design and interface changes. Mozilla has a clear goal: "to create a clean, modern and above all user-friendly version of Firefox, minimize distractions and reduce cognitive load when browsing." "

Once the new version is installed, we see that in fact, the look of the main elements of the toolbar has been revised to arrive at a more refined design. We keep the structure in three areas, with navigation first and its classic returns, moving forward, refreshing. Then comes the address bar, whose privacy shield is a bit better integrated into the set, the lock and the URL. Finally, to the right of this bar, we have access to the very practical reading mode, the zoom level (unless you are at 100%) and bookmarks.

Light hamburger

Another novelty: the menu, located at the top right, nicknamed hamburger because of its three horizontal bars, has been considerably lightened. Labels are clearer and easier to read. In our opinion, this is perhaps the best part about this new version.

Mozilla also assures us that the functioning of the tabs has been reviewed. At first glance, this is not obvious, but as soon as we move them, we notice that indeed, a visual indicator has been added, which allows to have a preview of each tab without opening them. Another addition: now when you open a new tab that contains a video without going there immediately, the browser indicates in capital letters "AUTOMATIC PLAYING BLOCKED". This might not be the most elegant way to indicate it, but it has the merit of being clear.
