Mozilla has launched Firefox 15 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android.
Firefox 15's most notable changes are performance-based. There's faster startup on Windows PCs, plus incremental garbage collection and better management of plugins to prevent memory leaks. Other performance improvements surround WebGL enhancements. Version 15 also introduces a new Maintenance Service for Windows users that's installed by default, and which ensures all future Firefox updates are delivered promptly. This feature can be toggled on and off via the Options dialog -- select Advanced and switch to the Updates tab.
The Android version now supports Honeycomb tablets and promises a faster startup, the ability to "ctrl-F" find in page, a new select text tool, the ability to request desktop sites, tabs that can be swiped closed, support for the SPDY networking protocol v3, and the ability to pass bookmarks and settings from the stock Android browser over to Firefox.
