Mozilla has released Firefox 22 which brings many advance features – all based on open source and open standard. The new Firefox enables developers to create “high-performance Web applications and enables video calls and file-sharing directly in the browser, all without the need for plugins or third-party software.”
Mozilla is using Google‘s WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications) “to integrate these features into Web apps with just a few lines of code so developers can create more rich and interactive websites for people to experience across browsers.”
