Firefox 97 Review 2022

Mozilla released Firefox 97 on February 8, 2022. This is the second major browser update in 2022.

This is the ninth update for the new Proton user-interface which was first released in June 2021.

In this blog post, I cover some of the notable changes in this new browser update.

In the past couple of years, Mozilla has been releasing updates almost on a monthly basis for the Firefox web browser. However, not all of their updates include major changes and new features.

In this new Firefox 97 release, there is not much to report in terms of new features, but I will cover one notable change in this blog post.

First of all, as usual there were a few security fixes implemented. Secondly, one of the notable changes in Firefox 97 is the expiration of the Colorways theme colors feature.

This was a limited-time temporary feature that was implemented in version 94 of Firefox. Colorways can be accessed via the Add-on page and if you enabled one of the options, you will be able to keep it as long as it remains enabled.

If you’re on Windows 11, Firefox now supports and displays the new style of scrollbars. So that was pretty much it terms of updates in Firefox 97. You can check the list of detailed changes in the Release Notes.

In terms of the Browsermark Benchmark test results, the overall performance of Firefox remained steady compared to the earlier version. On the other hand, Google Chrome continues to outperform. Hope you found this brief review helpful and thanks for stopping by!
