Then click on the Mobile Site link at the bottom and it will change to the new version. To go back, click the Classic Desktop link at the bottom.

Only if users install the tests and Mozilla decides upon usage and feedback to make them a feature.

Experiments are opt-in.

Do you see any of the current experiments in your browser?

Guess most miss the conveniently placed small print at the bottom of your link regarding Non-Mozilla Services Privacy Policies.

How would one know until the deed's done, when like before, rather than being in Extensions they are HIDDEN.

I sent Mike Conca an email trying to find out when toolbar API will be released. Here is what he said:

I thought it would be better to ask Mozillazine community what features you are looking for/what is important to you and send Mike a link to your posts. Should I make a thread on reddit as well? :-k

I am personally a big fan of Tab Mix Plus so I expect toolbar API to support multiple rows of tabs. Also, since this bug is still not fixed..
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1237654
.. it would be great if addons using toolbar could trigger tab closing animation in Firefox tab bar.

Sorry for my poor English.

One knows because you have to install one from the Test Pilot site if you want to test it, that I linked to and you didn't review before answering. I also said current tests, not Last Experiments which also have a link on https://testpilot.firefox.com/experiments.

Have some ammunition before replying next time. [-X

It may be that Mozilla does that for a small percentage of users. AAUI this experiment is only for German users and rolled out to a small percentage of the user base in that country. Unlucky you. :cry:

Cliqz integrates an innovative quick search engine into Firefox. Spare yourself the detour via search engine pages. With privacy enhancements such as anti-tracking, Cliqz gives you control over your data.


Looks interesting. How is working out for you?
