Firefox Quantum 57 Is Here To Kill Google Chrome: Download For Windows, Mac, Linux

Download Firefox Quantum 57.0

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.

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.

The Photon UI has also been streamlined compared to previous versions of Firefox, and is created to provide smooth and fast performance when browsing your favorite websites.

Core changes include a new CSS engine that takes better advantage of modern hardware with multiple cores and low power consumption. The new UI is optimized for High DPI and touchscreen displays.

A new CSS engine called Stylo. Do many of you now use Firefox? "Our designers created a system that scales to more than just current hardware but lets us expand in the future". If you're using Photon on a Windows PC with a touch display, the menus change size based on whether you click with a mouse or touch with a finger. A Library button gives you access to your saved content like bookmarks, your Pocket reading list, and screenshots, making extensions for these services obsolete.
