02 Firefox 11 beta adds some useful features

Mozilla's dev dept. is certainly quite the active one when it comes to dishing out continuously new builds of Firefox. Just days after the release of Firefox 10, you guessed it, they're already actively working towards Firefox 11 with the first beta already now available for download.

But don't be so quick to turn your nose up at this one, as it may actually bring one or more things with it that appeal to you this time around. One significant inclusion here is add-on synchronization, allowing you to easily mirror any add-on installations you might have across multiple desktop machines without having to go through the process manually. Quite the time saver for some, I'm sure.

Another notable addition is the ability to migrate all your Bookmarks, History and Cookies from Google's Chrome browser, then there's some redesigned media controls for HTML5 based video playback and CSS text-size-adjust property support.

Devs also get some new stuff to play with as well, including a Page Inspector 3D View that gives a whole new perspective on structuring and making up a web page, a Style Editor tool, SPDY support and more.
