Firefox makes your Web experience faster by reducing memory usage when browsing with certain add-ons. The improvements make browsing smoother and more responsive.

Firefox adds features that make it easier for developers to build amazing Web experiences. The new JavaScript Debugger is a fast, built-in tool to give greater insight into Web application code. Developers can also use the JavaScript Debugger over a local network to remotely debug apps running on Firefox for Android, greatly simplifying mobile Web development.

Firefox introduces support for compressed textures, allowing game developers to take full advantage of video memory to build graphics-heavy games without losing performance. Firefox makes animations smoother with an improved JavaScript engine and enhancements to WebGL. Firefox also provides game and other interactive content developers precision to within thousandths of milliseconds with high precision timing. You can see Firefox’s new gaming enhancements in this demo.
