    Firefox 35 arrives with room-based conversations, MP4 playback on Mac, and Android download manager support
    Mozilla today launched Firefox 35 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android. Major additions to the browser include room-based Firefox Hello conversations, H.264 (MP4 files) playback on OS X, and integration with the Android download manager.

    Firefox 35 for the desktop is available for download now on Firefox.com, and all existing users should be able to upgrade to it automatically. As always, the Android version is trickling out slowly on Google Play.

    In Firefox 33 beta, Mozilla introduced an experimental WebRTC feature that let users of the browser make free voice and video calls without needing to download additional software or plugins, or create an account. The feature was further improved and launched as part of Firefox 34 (it’s now powered by the OpenTok real-time communications platform from TokBox, owned by Spanish carrier Telefonica).

    With Firefox 35, Mozilla has simplified the call process by eliminating some steps. Now, when you start a conversation (click the “Start a conversation” button), a window opens showing a self-view until the person you have invited clicks on the link and joins you. When they do (you can browse the web in the meantime), you’ll be notified with an audio alert and the Hello icon will turn blue.
