Mozilla has launched Firefox 44 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android, which includes push notifications, the removal of RC4 encryption, and new developer tools.

The company said that Firefox now lets users choose to receive push notifications from websites if they give them permission.

“This is similar to Web notifications, except now you can receive notifications for websites even when they’re not loaded in a tab,” said Mozilla.

“This is super useful for websites like email, weather, social networks, and shopping, which you might check frequently for updates.”

Users can manage their notifications in the Control Center by clicking the green lock icon on the left side of the address bar.
