Firefox 18 gets up to 25% faster JavaScript with IonMonkey, Retina and preliminary WebRTC support

Mozilla on Tuesday officially launched Firefox 18 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android. The improvements include a new JavaScript compiler, preliminary WebRTC as well as Retina support (on Macs).

The new version was already available yesterday on the organization’s FTP servers, but those were just the installers being released. Firefox 18 has now officially been made available over on Firefox.com and all users of old Firefox versions should be able to upgrade to it automatically. The Android version has also been updated over on the official Google Play Store.
