One of the most striking changes in this version is the disabling of the support for RC4 encryption about HTTPS connections, which although it is one of the most used protocols, has already been talking about its vulnerabilities and some holes that this encryption leaves in the security of the browser.

Another of the slightly more visible novelties, and represents the most important characteristics of which we have been talking, is the ability to receive the push notifications of websites, with the user's prior permission. With this novelty, Firefox is level with the Chrome browser, which previously had already included push notifications in April of last year for its version Chrome 42.

The usefulness of push notifications are many, they allow you to check updates and news on websites such as email, weather, as well as numerous social networks.

    I think it's great that push notifications have been implemented ... but I already have it in version 44 and the truth is that at the moment the possibility of activating them on any website has not appeared except those that already allowed it, such as Telegram Web or WhatsApp Web.
