Firefox takes a Quantum leap with all-new version

Firefox takes a Quantum leap with all-new version

Firefox also has more than 60 search providers "pre-installed" with the browser that users can take advantage of. A comparison video produced by Mozilla shows that Firefox Quantum can load certain popular websites such as Wikipedia faster than Google Inc.'s market leading Chrome. Firefox 57 combines the address and search bars - for new installations at least; existing users who miss the latter can restore it - reduces the clutter at the top of the window, and debuts a reworked new tab page. The download links for Firefox Quantum or Firefox 57, whatever you would like to call, will pop-up on this page.

"When you open a new tab in Firefox, you'll now see three recommended stories from Pocket", said Nate from Pocket. Mozilla, the not-for-profit organization that makes Firefox, claims Quantum is twice as fast as its original browser was six months ago. Of course the company can't steal from itself, which means Mozilla tried to do a quick joke whilst announcing their new web browser.

And despite the constant knocks on Google Chrome, Mozilla has no qualms about the fact that Google is now the default search provider for Firefox Quantum in the United States and Canada. Next year Mozilla will be working to improve these areas. Inc.as the default Firefox search provider in the US after Yahoo agreed to pay more than $300 million a year over five years - more than Google was willing to pay.


The Quantum project, the Photon UI overhaul and last year's move to make Firefox a multiple-process browser have been crucial to Mozilla's recovery strategy. Instead, the recommendations come from Pocket users around the world. All versions of Firefox now have a 9.1 percent market share, below IE + Edge and Safari. The new version, which Mozilla calls "by far the biggest update since Firefox 1.0 in 2004", brings massive performance improvements and a visual redesign. "The dominance of Google on Android, of Safari on iOS, Internet Explorer and Chrome on PCs, there's just not room for another browser".

And Firefox's Quantum upgrade isn't that, Gold argued. They sound pretty major, and I have a habit if keeping 10-20 tabs open at once all day long, so the speed increase and memory usage reduction over Chrome should help. It took a year for Firefox to finish the undertaking.
