Latest Firefox browser update comes with huge performance improvements

The Quantum Project was first announced more than a year ago and a beta was released in September.

Mozilla is determined to win you back. Web browser usage share has remained relatively stable for a while, particularly for Firefox (about 13.1 percent as of October, according to NetMarketshare) and for Chrome (59.8 percent).

The new version is available now for Linux, Mac and Windows users. In other words, it's a major platform that web developers target - even in a world increasingly dominated by mobile apps.

Mozilla claims its updated web browser is twice as fast as its last one, and uses a lot less memory than the competition-Google Chrome in particular.

What are your views on Firefox Quantum?

KitGuru Says: I switched back from Firefox to Chrome sometime previous year, but with these new updates, I may need to switch again to check out these improvements. The Firefox Quantum browser is based on a next-generation engine that is built for modern multi-CPU and GPU based PCs.

Mozilla has released Firefox Quantum today as a free download for PC, iOS, and Android. Mozilla has also fixed hundreds of issues related to Firefox slowness in the past several months, adding to the feeling of a faster browser. It's simple and sleek, and it gives Firefox users a new feel with its refreshed icons. With the new (fast and fluid Photon) design, Firefox leaps ahead with a new interface that reflects today's reality of High DPI displays and users who are more task focused than they've ever been. 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. It should be better at scaling in the future, to boot. You can expect square tabs, a dark color scheme, smooth animations, and a restructuring of menus. The new Library provides quick access to your saved stuff: bookmarks, Pocket, history, downloads, tabs, and screenshots.
