Future Releases: What’s New in Firefox Beta


En av nyheterna är stöd för krypteringssviten ChaCha20-Poly1305, som hittills har stötts endast av Chromium. Fördelen med ChaCha20-Poly1305, jämfört med AES-GCM, är att sviten är snabb också på äldre hårdvara, som saknar kryptoinstruktioner. Google stöder det på sina servrar, och använder det för Chrome på äldre och mobil hårdvara. CloudFlare, som distribuerar en stor mängd sidor, har stött det i drygt ett år.


Nytt är också att VP9-video aktiveras på ”snabba maskiner”. Man skall inte behöva en särskilt snabb dator för VP9, helst inte sedan Firefox bytte från libvpx till ffvp9, som är väldigt snabb. Då VP9 är omkring dubbelt så effektiv som AVC/H.264 High Profile, är ffvp9 snabbare än ffh264, vid avkodning av videor med samma kvalitet.
