MOZILLA --
While Chrome 55 has JavaScript async/await support, the Firefox support isn't coming until the Firefox 52.0 stable release in March while currently it's available in the latest Firefox Developer Edition and early alpha builds.

Mozilla developer Dan Callahan wrote a post today on hacks.mozilla.org for the async/await support in Firefox and can be used if you are running the latest Firefox Developer Edition. Check it out if you're interested in JavaScript async await support for more asynchronous programming for the web.

Other changes coming in Firefox 52 include the removal of the Battery Status API, removing MPAPI support for plugins other than Flash (Java / Silverlight / Acrobat NPAPI is no longer supported in other words), a responsive design mode for developers, CSS Grid Layout is on, and more. Other developer changes for Firefox 52 can be found at developer.mozilla.org.
