recently i have read a few articles about improved or added features in firefox. the first one that popped up for me today was firefox monitor. monitor uses data provided by have i been pwned to provide a report of any email, data or password breaches your account may have been subject to. i had previously run my email through have i been pwned so i can verify that the info provided was the same. if i am reading the page correctly (i checked while signed in), you don’t even have to have a firefox account to check.
checking that out reminded me of another feature i had read about called firefox send. this one i haven’t used yet, but it seems like a useful feature. according to the link it allows sharing files of up to 1 gb (2.5 gb for a signed in account) with end-to-end encryption and a link that automatically expires.
the last one occurred to me when i stopped by a news site to read an article and some nice older woman who feels no pain was yelling at me (not really, but it was loud) because the video and audio auto-started before the page even finished loading. the last link below explains that starting with firefox 66 (along with many other changes) auto-playing audio will now be muted.
