Mozilla launches Firefox Quantum, its fastest browser ever

Mozilla launches Firefox Quantum, its fastest browser ever

It has a new User Interface (UI) that is called Photon, and its goal is to modernize and unify anything that we call Firefox while taking advantage of the speedy new engine. This standard's already supported by rival browsers and is now Firefox's extension platform too.

The company uses its next-generation browser engine (Project Quantum) for improved performance.

Mozilla claims that Quantum is faster than Google Chrome on a number of popular websites, including Google search, Google's login page, Wikipedia, Bing, Tumblr and Shutterstock. This timeframe's work includes a "completely overhauled core engine" and "brand new technology stolen from [Mozilla's] advanced research group".

Mozilla released a test version of Firefox Quantum web browser in September in preparation for its upcoming official debut in November. Mozilla claims that Quantum also uses 30% less memory than Google's Chrome browser, and is meant for those who surf the net by opening a million different tabs and rapidly switching between all of them.

Other features included with Firefox Quantum include a new Screenshots tool, which lets you capture images of your browsing sessions and share them directly from within Firefox.

It takes advantage of multiple CPU cores on desktop and mobile both for better performance. Mozilla is determined to win you back.

Firefox Quantum is capable of 66 runs per minute, that's twice as fast as its previous version, according to Speedometer, a browser benchmark that measures the responsiveness of web applications.

You can set one up right when you open Firefox Quantum. It also uses less memory than competing browsers with a fresh new UI in place. The company calls this initiative Photon. 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. You can expect square tabs, a dark color scheme, smooth animations, and a restructuring of menus.

The last change users will notice is the integration of Pocket, a product Mozilla acquired in February that serves up recommended content within tab windows.
