Firefox 18 is released

Mozilla released Firefox 18 with their new IonMonkey JavaScript engine, better image scaling quality, faster tab switching, and lots more. Ubuntu users should be getting their updates as we speak.

Ubuntu 12.10 already has Firefox 18

Check out the release notes for more info.

With Firefox 18 out the door, Firefox 19 gets promoted to Beta status. From the looks of it in-browser PDF viewing will be the highlight for this version while the Android version will also add support for ARMv6.

Meanwhile, Firefox nightly already has per-window Private Browsing available for testing.
