Firefox 15 Is Out, Uses Less Memory

Mozilla recently rolled out version 15 of its Firefox web browser. Among other things, this new version uses less memory so that you can surf the web even faster.

The very popular Firefox web browser has been recently updated to version 15 and the interesting thing about this version is that it lets you surf the web faster than before. The browser achieves this by reducing memory usage. You see, with version 15, Mozilla optimized memory usage for add-ons – the browser uses less memory with certain add-ons, and that translates to a faster web browsing experience. Or as Mozilla put it, “the improvements make browsing smoother and more responsive.”


Firefox 15 also comes with several new features. The following ones:
  • Silent updates that run in the background.
  • WebGL enhancements (this includes compressed textures for improved performance).
  • Support for SPDY networking protocol v3.
  • Added language support for Maithili.

From a security point of view, it must be said that Firefox 15 is accompanied by 7 security bulletins that carry the “critical” rating, the most severe rating Mozilla uses for vulnerabilities, 6 bulletins that are rated as “high”, and 3 that are rated as “moderate.” You can find out more about these security bulletins here.

Firefox for Android has also been updated to version 15. The most important new feature this version brings to the table is support for Android-powered tablets. On top of that it comes with faster startup times, a beautiful new design, find in page, and more.

Firefox 15 for Windows is available for download right here on FindMySoft.
Firefox 15 for other platforms is available for download straight from Mozilla here.
Firefox for Android is available for download on Google’s Play Store here.
