Where one browser leads, another follows. Firefox has had add-ons for quite some time, but, by the end of 2012, users can expect to see it follow in Chrome's footsteps, with a full marketplace of apps that will be available across all versions of Firefox.
Firefox 16 for Android also has some new features, including search suggestions and the ability to share web pages quickly across synced devices.
Firefox 16 is expected to launch on 9 October 2012.
