Further Javascript speedups coming in Firefox 22

With Firefox 21 out of the way, Firefox 22 is now officially in Beta. One of the things that's really interesting is OdinMonkey, Mozilla's new Javascript engine.

It's been in the nightly for a while now but it's now enabled by default starting with Firefox 22.

Another new feature coming in the next Firefox release is WebRTC which should allow better VoIP, video chatting and file sharing support across browsers that support the same standard.
