Mozilla Firefox 51.0 Promises WebGL 2 Support, Less CPU Usage, and FLAC Playback

Hoping that Mozilla’s initial plans for Firefox 51.0 won’t fade away before the final version hits the streets, which should happen on January 24, 2017, we’ll be able to finally enjoy support for the WebGL 2 3D rendering API, as well as better video performance on platforms without GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) acceleration. The latter means less CPU (Central Processing Unit) usage on slow PCs and a much-improved full-screen experience. Other than that, Firefox 51.0 promises to finally implement support for FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) playback and allow saving of passwords for forms that don’t offer ‘submit’ events.
