Mozilla has included a set of new developer and mobile features in its latest version of Firefox, designed improve the browser's display on smartphones and tablets.
The company said that the Firefox 16 update would bring a set of new API options and command-line enhancements as well as the ability to bring up new display modes for mobile handsets and tablets.
The update includes the addition of 'reader mode'. Designed for mobile devices, the feature allows users to minimise non-text content on devices and view pages with minimised graphics content and optimised text display.
"Simply tap the 'Reader' icon in the Awesome Bar to activate," the company said in a blog post.
"This feature provides an enjoyable and clutter-free way to read online content by removing advertisements, reformatting pictures and increasing font size."
Also among the new features will be the introduction of a new developer command line, which will be available as part of the developer toolbar.
Mozilla said that by adding the feature, developers will be given easy access to development tools. Additionally, the toolbar will add automatic error notification.
Other new features in the update include multiple performance and stability bug fixes as well as the addition of new developer APIs.
Windows users can obtain the Firefox 16 update through V3's download page. Users of other platforms can download the update from Mozilla.
