Mozilla Releases Firefox Quantum

NOT FOR PROFIT browser maker the Mozilla Foundation has taken its long-awaited Firefox 57, aka Quantum browser, out of beta, representing the firm's attempts to re-establish its market share after several years of decline.

On top of performance, the company promises a new sleek interface that promotes intelligent browsing. This new Firefox Quantum browser is now available for download.

The first ever Quantum-fueled Firefox version, Firefox 57, is about to land on your Windows, Linux, and macOS machines. The Android version is trickling out slowly on Google Play and the iOS version (which is usually updated separately from the other platforms) should eventually arrive on Apple's App Store.

The Firefox blog explains: "It's fast".

Firefox Quantum often uses less memory than Chrome (~30 percent less using a Windows 10 PC).

What are your views on Firefox Quantum?

Mozilla says they have doubled Firefox's speed since past year. When you open a new tab, you'll see now trending web pages recommended by Pocket users so you won't miss out on what's hot online, as well as your top sites. But since the last couple of years, Mozilla is working hard to give back Firefox the position it once had.

You can check out Mozilla's tests here and technical background here.

One of the reasons why people switched from Firefox to Google Chrome was speed. The new UI is optimized for High DPI and touchscreen displays.

The whole browser is built on a new CSS engine called Stylo which is more in tune with the hardware demands of the present day - this is, after all the biggest single change in Firefox history. "You guessed it: the Photon UI itself is incredibly fast and smooth". We looked at real world hardware to make Firefox look great on any display, and we made sure that Firefox looks and works like Firefox regardless of the device you're using.
