Mozilla has rolled out Firefox Quantum and even if you are an ardent fan of Google Chrome, you should try this fastest web browser. Firefox Quantum (57) is really fast and almost twice as fast as Firefox (52) from six months ago. It is built on a revamped core engine with brand new technology and has been given the latest look designed for getting out of the way and letting you do what you do best. For instance, opening a zillion tabs, surfing a ton of pages, and all this is guilt free as Firefox Quantum uses less memory as compared to any other web browsers.
Mozilla’s main motive is to keep the web open and competitive. Firefox is the way for Mozilla to bring new technologies like fast WebAssembly-powered games, VR and easier payments to the web. Firefox also plays a vital role if you know and care about the web’s value as neutral tech territory. Firefox was launched in 2004 and by far it is the biggest update to this browser. It is really better in every way possible. The first thing anyone will notice is the speed. You’ll be able to understand this when you open the tabs and play along. Along with the speed, the second noticeable thing is the brand new User Interface (UI). The latest Photon UI is undoubtedly smooth and very fast.
With the growing popularity of Google Chrome, somehow Mozilla got sidelined. Firefox Quantum which comes with a whole revamped version might be an attempt to start afresh. However, making a complete overhauled Firefox with a brand new look, feel and speed was not an easy task. This is why volunteers and employees around the globe worked in record time for creating the best Firefox till date. Almost 700 authors contributed code to Firefox since the release happened on 6th August. Not only this, almost 80 contributors around the world, with nearly every time-zone represented in round-the-clock awesomeness. Furthermore, there are 265,252,859,191,742,656,903,069,040,640,000 more ways to customize the new Firefox toolbar right out of the box. Pretty interesting! Isn’t it?!
There’s more to tell you about all the incredible work that went into Firefox Quantum, but you should try it for yourself and I’m sure it will make you content. According to Gartner Analyst David Smith, “Their mission is a good one and does keep the pressure up to keep the web open.” He even recommended web surfers to use “multiple modern browsers.”
