Good news coming for Firefox users, Remember Proton? It’s a new user interface for the Firefox browser. The first build of Proton was released back with Firefox v57. Mozilla finally rolled out the Firefox new UI in 2021 with Firefox v89.
With Firefox proton, Mozilla will bring a modern appearance and nifty features like Improved Tabs, address bar, menu, and even more. The modernized look and rounded corner match the upcoming Sun valley update for Windows 10.
The purpose of introducing the Firefox Proton UI is to offer users a browser with a modern look and feature that other popular browsers like Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome already have.
In the earlier versions users have to enable New “Proton” Firefox UI manually, but starting with Firefox v89 it’s officially available for all users. What that mean is that you no longer have to visit change advance preferences to get it. Personally, we really like the Firefox New UI
