Firefox Quantum Browser Takes On Chrome

Mozilla claims Firefox Quantum is twice as fast as Firefox browser from 6 months agoMozilla

Firefox Quantum

Mozilla has announced a new browser which is twice as fast as Firefox.

According to a blog post, Mozilla's year-long overhaul changed or added over 11 million lines of code, though it's not clear if "changed" includes "deleted" (presumably it does). Firefox now controls 13.14 percent of the browser market, behind Chrome's 59.84 and Internet Explorer's 15.09 percent.

Mozilla further stressed that it's by far the biggest update they've had since they launched Firefox 1.0 in 2004.

As for the Photon UI, this will be rolled out to Firefox browsers on iOS and Android too.

The browser market may about to become a lot more competitive.

Firefox may not be quite as popular as other browsers like Google Chrome, but Firefox Quantum might just change that. Whether this will be good enough to beat Chrome remains to be seen. "And even fewer people understand that Mozilla is a not-for-profit responsible for pro-Internet technologies, policies, and programs beyond Firefox". All versions of Firefox now have a 9.1 percent market share, below IE + Edge and Safari. "They share a worldview that is against monopolies and centralized power hubs, and for democratic access to information, knowledge, and resources". It's faster, cleaner looking, better with memory usage, and integrates the Pocket webpage-saving service.

This is the earliest state of the software on Android so it's no surprise that it's a bit janky; Mozilla is sure to improve it in the future.

According to Mozilla, Firefox Quantum will allow you to "surf a ton of pages, open a zillion tabs" without experiencing a glitch as it uses comparatively lesser memory.

There's more that could be said about Quantum, but at this point, you should stop reading and download Firefox Quantum, because it will make you happy.

The browser maker also dumped Yahoo as Firefox's default search engine in the U.S., Canada and elsewhere, to return to Google, its partner - and primary financier - before a falling out three years ago.

The Firefox development team used the Rust programming language to build this new rendering engine, which incorporates code from the Servo project and can take advantage of parallel processing using today's multicore CPUs.
