'Firefox 65, the latest version of Mozilla's web browser, is now
available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android platforms. The release
brings simplified Content Blocking controls for Enhanced Tracking
Protection, support for WebP image support with the Windows client
getting an additional feature: support for AV1 format. From a report:
Across all platforms, Firefox can now handle Google's WebP image
format. WebP supports both lossy and lossless compression and promises
the same image quality as existing formats at smaller file sizes.
Firefox 65 for desktop brings redesigned controls for the Content
Blocking section to let users choose their desired level of privacy
protection. You can access it by either clicking on the small "i" icon
in the address bar and clicking on the gear on the right side under
Content Blocking or by going to Preferences, Privacy & Security, and
then Content Blocking.
Next, Firefox now supports AV1, the royalty-free video codec developed
by the Alliance for Open Media. AV1 improves compression efficiency by
more than 30 percent over the codec VP9, which it is meant to succeed.
Lastly, Firefox's new Task Manager page (just navigate to
about:performance or find it under "Other" in the main menu) is
complete. Introduced in Firefox 64, Task Manager now reports memory
usage for tabs and add-ons.'
