    Firefox 96 Yields Less Load On The Main Thread, WebP Encoder For Canvas

    Firefox 96.0 is now available as the first update for 2022 of this open-source web browser.
    Firefox 96.0 has “significantly” reduced the load on its main thread. There are also “significant” improvements to noise suppression, auto-gain control, and echo cancellation. WebRTC enhancements, a better cookie policy to decrease the risk of Cross-Site Request Forgery attacks (CSRF), video quality degradation fixes and other fixes are part of this performance improvement.


    Over on are some of the web developer changes with Firefox 96 including CSS color value function hwb() support for specifying the hue/whiteness/blackness, support for the CSS color-scheme property, the Web Locks API is enabled by default, image encoder support for WebP for exporting HTML5 canvas elements, and other additions.

    Firefox 96.0 is available now, while you wait for the official announcement from Mozilla.

    Linux Mint also announced Monday that they have partnered with Mozilla. Although financial details weren’t disclosed, Linux Mint’s Firefox build would change its default homepage, switch to Mozilla search engines, and make other modifications for Mozilla.
