Mozilla has updated its browser Firefox for Android to version 37.

The update adds support for the following locales:

  • Albanian [sq]
  • Burmese [my]
  • Lower Sorbian [dsb]
  • Songhai [son]
  • Upper Sorbian [hsb],
  • Uzbek [uz]

Turkish users will now find that Yandex has been set as default search provider.

One of the main changes the way the URL bar works. The URL bar now displays page address, and not the page title like it used to.

The other important change is the new download manager which will improve the download performance. Tapping on the browser’s shortcut icon now opens the existing tab instead of new tab.

Download Firefox for Android from Google Play:

It is a worthy alternative to Google Chrome, especially since it supports extensions, which include AdBlockPlus, µBlock, LastPass and more.
