http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget.com/media/2013/04/firefox-20-download-manager_620x340.jpgSome Firefox (http://www.engadget.com/tag/Firefox/) releases have more noticeable (http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/08/firefox-browser-updated/) changes than others (http://www.engadget.com/2013/02/19/firefox-19-now-official-with-a-built-in-pdf-viewer/). We'd say that the newly finalized Firefox 20 is firmly in that first camp. The new release gives desktop users a Safari-like download manager that pops out from the toolbar, making it possible to check on a big download without anything so ungainly as a separate window. Also new are more refined approaches to private browsing that can open a new window (on the desktop) or tab (on Android (http://www.engadget.com/2013/02/26/firefox-20-beta-android/)) for those extra-personal, secretive... gift-shopping sessions, according to Mozilla. Whether or not you believe that euphemism, there's no doubt that Android users receive their own specific treat through support for lower-end ARMv6 phones, including relative oldies like the HTC Legend (http://www.engadget.com/2010/03/10/htc-legend-review/) and Samsung Galaxy Q (http://www.engadget.com/2011/08/20/mobile-miscellany-week-of-august-15-2011/).
