Mozilla releases Firefox 22 touting WebGL and WebRTC support

Mozilla has released its Firefox 22 web browser with support for WebRTC and improved WebGL performance.

Mozilla has spit out its latest Firefox release in its now customary six week cadence with significant multimedia improvements. The firm’s Firefox 22 web browser brings WebRTC support and improved performance of WebGL, which Mozilla claims can provide high quality 3D multiplayer gaming within the browser.

Mozilla has been demonstrating the possibilities of WebRTC for some time, including web browser based video conferencing. The firm hopes that WebRTC will allow web developers to build full-on applications rather than the so-called “rich web applications”, and enable cross browser compatibility without the need for downloading third-party plugins.

Mozilla was keen to play up its partnerships within the industry over WebRTC, saying it has already demonstrated the technology with telecoms giant Ericsson and playing up the technology’s ability to handle video telephony.

The firm said, “Mozilla demonstrated this at Mobile World Congress, in partnership with Ericsson, to show how Firefox can integrate seamlessly with a users’ mobile phone and make voice or video calls and share files. We are excited to see WebRTC in action with TokBox’s OpenTok live video platform that enables countless developers and enterprises to create powerful and innovative live video applications. WebRTC opens up endless potential for future communications on the web.”

While Mozilla is placing considerable emphasis on WebRTC, the firm also touted its work with Epic to bring the Unreal Engine 3 to Javascript and make use of WebGL. The firm said WebGL will allow developers to code high quality games, though until all web browsers have good performance and conformity to the WebGL standard, developers might stick with more traditional technologies.

Mozilla’s Firefox 22 web browser is available for download now for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
