Mozilla after releasing its earlier version of Firefox 61 to general public, has started development work on its next version Firefox 62 for the web browser. The company has now made available the latest Firefox 62 version for public beta testing with new features.

The latest version of Firefox brings enhancement to the privacy of users with the company introducing new options Clear Site Data and Cookie button in the pop up beside the address bar.

This helps users to easily delete local browsing data for already visited websites along with being able to delete history, cookies and more. Mozilla is also introducing the ability to wipe or clear all of the personal and browsing data from the device which is disconnected from Firefox Sync.

The data which can be deleted includes passwords, history, cookies, bookmarks and more. This option helps users in safeguarding their data especially if they are accessing personal sites like banking sites from other PCs.

The company is also introducing a new Tracking Protection feature in Firefox 62 which can be enabled and disabled without any issues. The idea of the Tracking Protection feature is to prevent websites from being able to track you over the web.

The new Tracking Protection feature can be accessed via a button which is being added in the hamburger menu. Mozilla also introduces option to display preview images in the New Bookmark dialog along with introducing the ability to adjust various New Tab page sections like Highlights.

Mozilla is also bringing some features for the web developers by changing rules of the three pane Inspector in the Developer Tools. The latest Firefox 62 Web browser is expected to be released on September 5, 2018 for the general public.

If you are a Firefox Beta tester then you will be able to get your hands on the new Firefox 62 version by downloading it on your Windows PC. The update is also available for Firefox users on Linux and macOS as well.
