Mozilla Brings Competition to Google Chrome With New Firefox Quantum Browser

Hopefully that momentum will translate into increased market share and better competition for Chrome. Firefox has remained based on an archaic architecture that offers noticeably limited performance next to its contemporaries.

"Anyone who downloads this version, which is so advanced we call it "Firefox Quantum", simply can't help but notice the speed, performance improvements, and the responsively slick new UI", wrote David Bryant in a Medium post Tuesday.

Mozilla doesn't break out the exact numbers for Firefox, though the company does say "half a billion people around the world" use the browser. The new engine has been parallelized and should be substantially faster, and Mozilla believes it can use its new Servo engine to enable capabilities like mixed-reality support far more easily than would've been possible in the old version.

The greatest offering objective of Quantum versus Chrome is the littler RAM utilization - something Google has been a few times studied for throughout the years. It will also be available for iOS and Android mobile platforms. It all adds up to a once-in-a-decade overhaul which Mozilla claims will be "fast for good". Menus have been revised, there's a new unified search bar and the sidebar has been reorganised. A new feature called Tracking Protection blocks extensive requests for online user tracking. This update has taken six months, but the results seem to be paying off. According to Mozilla, Firefox will now more effectively prioritize the tab you're currently using ahead of tabs running in the background. "Intuitive and modern " Firefox Quantum represents a significant milestone for the web browser. Next year Mozilla will be working to improve these areas. Today, the organisation's outwardly acknowledging that Firefox has slowly slipped away from the mainstream and been surpassed by newer browsers. Developers have been tinkering with the test version over the past several weeks to let Mozilla know if there are any bugs or security holes prior to Tuesday's public release. "It's been a year in the making and our biggest update of code in over 10 years".

Firefox today released its freshest program Firefox Quantum out of beta. The Pocket service is built right into the toolbar, for easy saving stuff for later.
