Firefox 18 available to download

It seems like just yesterday that Mozilla released Firefox 17 into the wild. Today, Firefox users can get their hands on the latest stable release, Firefox 18. This isn’t a major release but there are a bunch of minor improvements a tweaks that claim to make Firefox run faster. Specifically, there is a new JavaScript compiler called IonMonkey, which Mozilla claims will improve web apps and games to run 25% quicker.

Additionally, Mac users can look forward to Retina Display support for 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pro models. Android users can look forward to Google Now integration, meaning links and search results will open up in Firefox instead of Chrome, if you’ve set Firefox to be your default browser. Firefox also claims to be the first to integrate Safe Browsing by default in their Android browser. This means phishing attacks and malware will be stopped before it reaches your phone. Users will get a warning if something phishy is happening.
