Firefox 114 Beta Revamps DNS over HTTPS Feature, Adds Cookie Banner Reduction
Mozilla never stops and work already started on the next major release of their popular open-source and cross-platform web browser, Firefox 114, which entered public beta testing this morning.
With Firefox 113 hitting the stable channel today, we are already looking forward to the Firefox 114 release, which is currently in the beta channel and promises to introduce several new security features to make our Internet surfing session safer.
One of the biggest changes in Firefox 114 is the revamp of the DNS over HTTPS feature, a privacy-focused feature that sends your request for a domain name through an encrypted connection, creating a secure DNS and making it much harder for third parties to see the websites you’re visiting.
Previously, DNS over HTTPS was implemented in the Network Settings dialog and it was disabled by default. When enabled it would allow you to choose your favorite provider from either Cloudflare or NextDNS.
