Firefox 18 also implements basic support for WebRTC, which will eventually allow compatible browsers to perform certain high-end functions such as video and voice calls without the need for third-party plugins.

The new IonMonkey Java compiler will help optimize the translation of Javascript to machine code. It will create what Mozilla calls a ‘Middle Step’ – labeled an intermediate representation (IR) – where the compiler will be able to review the translation results and optimize them..
