The new features in Mozilla Firefox 22 are as follows:

  1. WebRTC will be enabled by default.
  2. No automatic plugin reactivation.
  3. Firefox 22 will scale the resolution by itself and adjust the size of the text accordingly.
  4. In Firefox 22, the download progress status will be there on the dock application icon itself.
  5. The user will be able to modify the audio/video playback rate as per his requirements.
  6. OdinMonkey’ has been enabled on his browser which is a major improvement.
  7. The WebGL has been modified. Thus users will experience better 2D and 3D graphics here.
  8. Firefox 22 is smart enough to word-wraptext so that the users don’t need to scroll the screen horizontally for reading it.
  9. The browser has fixed all security issue that its predecessor had, thereby making it less prone to attacks.

System Requirements:

  • Operating System: It should be Window XP SP2 or higher.
  • Processor: Pentium 4 or higher.
  • RAM: 512 MB or higher.
  • Memory: 200 MB or higher.

The browser’s  speed has improved, because since it copies the cache memory of other browsers, it doesn’t need to resend a first time opening request to website and they open instantaneously.

The browser can be downloaded from Mozilla.org. If you are already a Firefox user, make sure you have updated it to its latest version.
