Mozilla released another, the 115th version of the Firefox browser — and the main news of the official announcement is not a list of innovations, but the announcement that this will be the last version of the browser that supports Windows 7 and 8 operating systems.

This decision was made by the developer because Microsoft ended support for these OSes in January 2023 (we remind that with Google Chrome it happened back in February).

The good news is that Firefox 115 also has ESR-version (Extended Support Release), which will receive security updates longer than usual. Note that in addition to Windows 7 and 8, the next versions of Firefox will also lose support for macOS 10.12, 10.13 and 10.14.

As for new features in Firefox 115, it learned to migrate payment methods stored in Chrome-based browsers, got hardware video decoding support for Intel GPUs on Linux, the ability to close open pages in the tab manager, etc. The full list of changes can be found on the official website.
