Firefox 22 Delivers Open Source Communications

Among the big items that has landed in Firefox 22 is WebRTC. WebRTC is a Real Time Communication (RTC) effort that will enable users to use a browser as a communications and collaboration vehicle. Mozilla has been working on including WebRTC over the last several Firefox releases, and with Firefox 22 now considers it to be ready for prime time.

“WebRTC is currently fully enabled and we are excited to get it into the hands of developers,” Gavin Sharp, lead Firefox engineer told Datamation. “With this release we’ve added DataChannels and PeerConnection in addition to getUserMedia.”
