New Security Features Planned for Firefox 4

The browser wars are in full swing. Market leader Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) is pushing to regain momentum as it readies Internet Explorer 9, while Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) continue to update Chrome and Safari respectively.

Another key player, Mozilla, developer of the popular Firefox browser, isn’t sitting still either. As eSecurity Planet reports, Mozilla plans to include new and improved security features in Firefox 4, due out later this year, including a specific defense against clickjacking and improved performance.

Open source browser vendor Mozilla is readying an ambitious new release of its Firefox Web browser. The third beta of Firefox 4, set to debut sometime this month, is expected to include more stability, features and performance improvements over earlier versions.

Among the areas that Mozilla is focusing on with Firefox 4 are a number of new security features that it says will make the browser even more secure than earlier versions.
