Latest Firefox browser update comes with huge performance improvements

According to Mozilla, Firefox quantum is roughly twice as fast as Firefox 52 from six months ago.

Quantum is Mozilla's project to build the next-generation web engine for Firefox users, building on the Gecko engine as a solid foundation. The download links for Firefox Quantum or Firefox 57, whatever you would like to call, will pop-up on this page. It also claims that Firefox Quantum uses less memory than the competing browsers.

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. The Android version is trickling out slowly on Google Play and the iOS version (which is usually updated separately from the other platforms) should eventually arrive on Apple's App Store. 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.

Mozilla said that they have revamped the user interface and are calling this new UI as Photon.

You can snag the new browser from Mozilla's site.

Firefox has historically run mostly on just one CPU core, but Quantum takes advantage of multiple CPU cores in today's desktop and mobile devices much more effectively.
