MOZILLA --
Mozilla is officially releasing Firefox 36.0 today and with this version comes a number of new features.

Firefox 36.0 isn't officially out quite yet, but the binaries can already be found for all major platforms. With the Firefox 36.0 release comes full support for HTTP/2, adds partial support for Media Source Extensions (MSE) to handle native HTML5 playback on YouTube, 1024-bit RSA keys have been phased out, pinned tiles on the new tab page can be synced, various HTML5 updates, and improved ES6 generators for better performance.

More of the smaller changes to Firefox 36.0 can be discovered from the beta release notes. Those wanting to get Firefox 36.0 right now can do so from the Mozilla FTP server. Sadly this new version doesn't yet deliver on the GTK3+ Firefox UI support, though Fedora 22 is patching their browser to make use of GTK3.
