Firefox 18 Beta is available

With Firefox 17 out of the way, we can now anticipate the upcoming Firefox 18. Currently in Beta.

W3C touch events, a new HTML image scaling algorithm, and Ion Monkey are just some of the new stuff you can expect once Firefox 18 is released. To get a feel for the Javascript improvements Ion Monkey will introduce, Mozilla's Are We Fast Yet? provides a nice peek with various benchmarks.

More details in the release notes.
