Firefox 22 has arrived

Firefox 22 available on Ubuntu 13.04

Firefox 22 came out yesterday with improved WebGL performance, the new OdinMonkey JavaScript engine, WebRTC support enabled by default and lots more.

Otherwise known as asm.js, OdinMonkey will not be giving your JavaScript application a boost in all cases. It's designed for a subset of the JavaScript language so that optimizations can be done to achieve near-native code speeds.

Ubuntu users should, of course, be getting their updates soon if they haven't already.

More details available in the release notes.
