'Mozilla today launched Firefox 76 for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Firefox 76 includes new Firefox Lockwise password functionality, Zoom
improvements, and a handful of developer features. From a report:
Lockwise, the password management service formerly known as Firefox
Lockbox, is getting smarter. The Firefox feature already lets you
generate, manage, and protect all those passwords for streaming
services, grocery deliveries, and anything else that helps during the
pandemic. If you share your device with family or roommates, Lockwise
in Firefox 76 can now protect your saved passwords. When you try to
view or copy a password from your "Logins and Passwords" page, you
will be prompted for your device's account password.
[...] Firefox 76 adds support for Audio Worklets, which run custom
on the web. Unlike their predecessor, ScriptProcessorNode, worklets
run off the main thread in a similar way to web workers. Mozilla also
notes Audio Worklets are "being adopted by some of your favorite
software programs." The company specifically called out Zoom, which
has become a phenomenon of its own during the pandemic. In short, you
now join Zoom calls in Firefox without having to download or install
the Zoom client.'
