Features: What’s new in Firefox 15?

Mozilla team examined this issue and introduced new code that stops memory leaking within the browser.

Another notable addition is the Chrome-like Options tab. This tab will help you manage your Firefox settings better.

You can also view PDF files on Firefox 15 without downloading additional addons or extensions.
