New Firefox Quantum Browser Gets Official
Firefox Quantum is said to be twice as fast as Firefox 49 from previous year, and use 30% less memory than Google Chrome. The new browser is apparently two times faster than the current versions of Firefox.
Mozilla has also tweaked Firefox to give priority to the tab you're actively using. Some of the fruits of this project have already made its way to users, such as the use of multiple CPU cores, the use of the WebAssembly language, and support for WebVR.
Last but not least, Mozilla has fixed 468 issues related to Firefox slowness in the past several months, adding to the feeling of a faster browser. The beta version is available to download now.
"Firefox Quantum feels right at home with today's mouse and touch-driven operating systems: Windows 10, macOS High Sierra, Android Oreo, and iOS 11", Mozilla said.
We can see from an older Mozilla slide below that Servo looked quite promising compared to Gecko, the old rendering engine used by Firefox.
On top of the general speed improvements, Firefox Quantum will also introduce a new coat of paint to the browser. These changes on a Windows PC with a touchscreen know if you are clicking with a mouse or a finger and will change size based on what you are using. Complement the list of individual characteristics interface Photon with adaptation for displays with high DPI, and automatic scaling features of the touch input.

As services were ending Sunday, a former member of the congregation shot and killed a woman who was walking back to her auto . Caleb Engle's grandmother also praised him, saying she is very proud. "It was a good church", said Merritt, 58.
Speaking of Pocket, Firefox Quantum integrates the read-it-later app, which Mozilla acquired in February, even further. Menus and tabs have been redesigned, while a new "library" button pulls together bookmarks, downloads and history into one place. 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. For example, the developer edition has received refined, redesigned, and brand new developer tools (more details here). As part of its Project Photon initiative, Firefox is getting rid of the curved tab design that was both the source of identification and ridicule. No other browser can do this.
As always, developers will want to take a close look at what's in the pipeline.
Browser maker Mozilla hopes to regain some momentum with the release of a souped-up version of its flagship Firefox browser.
The plumbing isn't the only thing that will be changing in Firefox 57.
