1. Captions and Subtitles in Picture-in-Picture
Released in 2019, Picture-in-Picture is one of the most favored features in Mozilla Firefox. Many users love it because it allows them to multitask while browsing and watching a video at the same time.
In this Mozilla Firefox 100 update, Picture-in-Picture also gets an awesome update. It supports captions and subtitles.
Picture-in-Picture subtitles and captions will initially be available on three websites: YouTube, Prime Video, and Netflix, as well as websites that accept the WebVTT format, such as coursera.org and Twitter.
As stated in the blog, the developers expect that the new Picture-in-Picture subtitles feature will benefit hard-of-hearing, multi-tasking, and multilingual users. They would also like to see this valuable tool introduced to more sites.
