If you're going against the grain and using Firefox as your browser of choice on iPhone or iPad, there are some nifty new features headed your way in the latest update. Perhaps most notable is that Firefox version 4.0 brings a new Today widget that will let you open a tab right in your notification center.

Of course, there's more to be had in this latest update, including:

  • Search your bookmarks and history in your browser's URL bar. The awesome bar is now even more awesome!
  • Manage certificate errors when visiting a secure website (https) by temporarily ignoring the error
  • Quickly open a new tab, a new private tab or a copied URL in Firefox through iOS's today widget
  • Print web pages through Airprint printers
