Key features of the Firefox 15 web-browser include reduced memory usage, a new JavaScript debugger, support for compressed textures, an improved JavaScript engine, WebGL enhancements, high precision timing support, and various other fixes and enhancements.

Firefox 15 for Android was released today as well to go along with the multi-platform desktop release. Additional Firefox 15 details are available from the Mozilla blog. Mozilla Firefox 15 is available for download from Mozilla.org.

For Chrome (since we’re speaking about WebGL) on linux try
