Update: Firefox 33 Alpha 1

Hello! I have got you some sneaky peek into the latest nightly build of Mozilla Firefox, Nightly 33 Alpha 1. The newer browser is more optimised for performance, and the Chrome-like menu button is still there. The aesthetics of the interface are absolutely fine.

The new feature, however, could be a breakthrough because it gives users the option to make voice calls via VoIP without the need for third-party apps or third-party dedicated software. The feature can be accessed by opening the Customize option from the menu button. You will get this.

Drag the caller icon aside the menu button and exit Customize tab. Click the caller button and you will get this.

Surprise! Probably you will need to enter the number of the person you want to talk and then get the URL for it to do so. There is also a Do Not Disturb option which probably means that either you will not get very flashy alerting by your browser to answer the call, or the person you want to talk to will not get disturbing flashy alerts.

I provide you the links from the directory of Mozilla to download the Windows, Mac, Linux and Android versions of this update here:
