Mozilla announced the release of a new version of Firefox for MSN fans called, appropriately, Firefox with MSN. It's described as a customized version of the browser for MSN users, which sets Bing as the default search engine in the search box and "Awesomebar," and saves msnNOW in a Firefox App Tab. It also makes your default home page.

Last year, Mozilla introduced Firefox with Bing. This takes Firefox deeper into the Microsoft ecosystem for those who like it just enough to still avoid using Internet Explorer.

"It also gives your Firefox an MSN theme and provides quick access links to popular MSN channels so you can easily get real time updates for news, entertainment, sports and the things that matter most to you," Mozilla says of the new offering.

You can download the browser itself here, or if you are already using Firefox, simply download the Firefox with MSN add-on.

There are about 20 different customized versions of Firefox available, including versions tailored to fans of AOL, Bing, Yahoo and Yandex.
