Mozilla has updated the beta distribution channel for its Firefox browser and version 15 is available for download which is full of new products for developers. Program such as debugger is redesigned, an integrated PDF viewer, HTML 5 integration, native support for Opus format and many other things. Find out more details on what this Beta version of Firefox 15 will bring us.
After publishing the final version of Firefox 14 a week ago, the Mozilla Foundation unveils some of the features which will be available in next version which previously was available in the alpha channel Aurora, now it’s moved into Beta. One of the main concerns in this version is again a memory management. The developers had launched the MemShrink to maximize the browser performance and pay more attention to external elements. According to tests made by Mozilla, Firefox 15 corrects the vast majority of memory leaks observed with the existing extensions. Some of the extensions they have mentioned are Adblock Plus, Video DownloadHelper, Greasemonkey, SiteAdvisor and development tool Firebug.
When it comes to HTML, a native support for audio format Opus was added. This is an open source format which gives a better compression than MP3, Ogg or AAC. For Mozilla, Opus is a new format for the future of audio on the Web, especially VoIP, and will be used with WebRTC (future Web standard for audio and video communications in the browser without plugins).
