In its continued stand against just relying on Google, Firefox is tuning its own search
Firefox introducing one-click searches, more search engine options

After the last big update, Mozilla is adding another new feature to Firefox: one-click search. According to its developers, the search suggestions this time around are a lot more organised and new buttons are now available below your search suggestions.

What do these buttons do? Well, apparently they help you more easily locate your search terms so you can access them quicker.

Firefox introducing one-click searches, more search engine options

Just recently Mozilla announced it was dumping Google as a default search engine and replacing it with Bing, citing privacy issues.

Mozilla is also making it easier to add additional search engines, including Stack Overflow, MDN as well as dictionary sites.

Firefox might have its ideals in the right place (openness, privacy-centric) but as far as performance goes, it still has to catch up with the faster, more popular Chrome. While Internet Explorer is only going to be the option for people who don't know any better, the ones who are savvy will choose Chrome over Firefox in most cases.

To be honest, though, we're more interested in seeing whether Firefox OS devices are ever going to make it to our shores.
