Mozilla has launched the new version of its open source browser Firefox for the desktop platforms including Mac, Windows and Linux, as well as the Firefox browser for Android. The all new Firefox 21.0 comes with feature and performance improvements along with a set of new options, with the major one being additional support for Mozilla Social’s API, which will now expand social integration from Facebook to Cliqz, Mixi and msnNOW.

As far as social network integration is concerned, Firefox will now highlight these integrated social networks in a Firefox sidebar featuring updated content and notifications on the browser’s tool bar. The concept was already introduced by Mozilla when it had partnered with Facebook in December last year, but now the company has expanded the social integration platform by adding multiple new options.
Also, Firefox for Android now features custom open source fonts Charis and Open Sans which will replace the default Android fonts. Mozilla believes this will make the visuals more appealing and will offer better reading experience on the Web.
To upgrade the browser, Firefox 21.0 is available on Firefox.com and the existing users can upgrade to it automatically. Google Play users will be updated to the new version over next few days.
