Mozilla Brings Competition to Google Chrome With New Firefox Quantum Browser

In an attempt to win back users, though, Mozilla is launching a new streamlined browser which it boasts is "over twice as fast" as Firefox. Firefox now controls 13.14 percent of the browser market, behind Chrome's 59.84 and Internet Explorer's 15.09 percent.

The first ever Quantum-fueled Firefox version, Firefox 57, is about to land on your Windows, Linux, and macOS machines.

The new browser not just looks impressive on claims but it also performs.

Studio Behind 'Minions' Nearing Deal To Create 'Super Mario' Animated Film
The videogame has previously been adapted into a live-action feature in 1993 that starred Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo. Illumination, which is behind the Despicable Me franchise and subsequent spin-offs, declined to comment.

KitGuru Says: I switched back from Firefox to Chrome sometime a year ago, but with these new updates, I may need to switch again to check out these improvements. The company says it brings massive performance improvements thanks to Project Quantum, the code name Mozilla used while building next-generation architecture for a new Firefox. In fact, Firefox VP of Product Nick Nguyen refers to Rust as Quantum's "secret sauce", according to TNW.

Firefox Quantum prioritizes the tab you're actively using - it downloads and runs before other tabs you have open in the background - and includes a new CSS engine called Stylo, which takes better advantage of multiple CPU cores that are optimized for low power consumption. "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. To create Photon, our user research team studied how people browsed the web.

Private browsing mode for Firefox Quantum looks just as good as regular browsing. Do many of you now use Firefox? If you use Quantum on a Windows PC with a touch display, the menus change size based on whether you click with a mouse or touch with a finger. A Library button gives you access to your saved content like bookmarks, your Pocket reading list, and screenshots, making extensions for these services obsolete. 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.
