Faster Firefox Quantum browser is now available

The greatest offering goal of Quantum versus Chrome is the littler RAM utilization - something Google has been a couple of times studied for throughout the years.

Google is the new default search provider in the United States and Canada. 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. But those were just the tip of the iceberg. It also uses less memory than competing browsers with a fresh new UI in place. The developers have overhauled the core engine and implemented new technologies to provide a fresh coat of paint, in addition to plenty of under the hood changes to improve the user experience. 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.

As well as focusing on speed, Mozilla has equipped Firefox Quantum with a new user interface called Photon.

The core engine uses less memory, and therefore less power, allowing for multiple tabs while the CSS engine runs in parallel across multiple processor cores available on PC and mobile devices. Mozilla has also fixed hundreds of issues related to Firefox slowness in the past several months, adding to the feeling of a faster browser. More importantly, Firefox Quantum is built to be faster and easier to use, an effort that could help Mozilla scrape back users it lost to rivals Google Chrome and Apple's Safari browser. Do many of you now use Firefox? "In fact, nearly 75% of the Firefox code was impacted all to give you a browser that is fast, intuitive and modern on all of your devices". The selected stories are chosen out of the millions of items users are saving to Pocket throughout the day, and becuase of this Mozilla says, "they do a great job of representing what's worth reading and watching on the web". "Our designers created a system that scales to more than just current hardware but lets us expand in the future". 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.
