With Firefox 88 released yesterday, the Firefox 89 beta is now available for testing. Notable this time around is refining of the web browser's user interface.

Mozilla developers have been working to "modernize the core experience" so that it's cleaner, more inviting, and easier to use. There are navigation improvements, streamlined menus, an enhanced tab design, and more cohesive visuals.

Aside from the UI/UIX improvements with Firefox 89, the beta release also continues with privacy/security improvements, support for the Event Timing API, and other enhancements.
