Firefox 33 is out for Linux, Mac and PC today, bringing with it performance upgrades and slight changes to its search and sessions restore features.

Some under-the-hood changes ensures that Firefox 33 runs smoothly, even if a rogue process is bogging down the browser. This will also make scrolling and zooming more fluid across all platforms.

The browser also get an improved session restore feature, which will help back up your browsing session in case of a crash or restart. It’s extremely frustrating to lose all your open tabs if your browser crashes or you need to restart it because of an update.

Search has also been improved by offering search suggestions on both the new home and new tab pages.

Firefox for Android will receive and update to version 33 in the coming days. The update will bring Chromecast and Roku support for beaming video to your TV. You can also look forward to an undo tab close feature in case you accidentally swiped away a tab you needed.
