Firefox 60 Released


Firefox 60 released on May 9th, with a much awaited feature for Linux users. Firefox is now able to hide titlebar by default. This will be a big moment of joy for gnome users who were troubled with the fat titlebar taking half of of the screen. Previously, before Firefox Quantum, it was done by an extension. Client Side Decoration (CSD) support was under discussion for more than couple of years.
