Mozilla updates Firefox with 3D gaming, video calling and file sharing
Mozilla Firefox 22 has bundled with new web technologies as WebGL, Emscripten, asm.js and WebRTC. These new technologies allows developers to easily develop heavy contents for the browser directly on the web. With the default support of Web Real-Time Communications (WebRTC), web apps can perform voice and video calling without any effort from third-party app. The presence of WebRTC also enables P2P file sharing even in the absence of any third-party app or plugin.
