Firefox 57 brings Project Quantum to the masses

Firefox Quantum 57 Is Here To Kill Google Chrome: Download For Windows, Mac, Linux Firefox Quantum arrives with faster browser engine, major visual overhaul, and Google as default search engine

Mozilla says Firefox Quantum also uses 30% less memory than Google Chrome.

The greatest offering goal of Quantum versus Chrome is the littler RAM utilization - something Google has been a few times studied for throughout the years. Note that in the wake of opening the tenth tab, Quantum starts to give a squiggly stacking hint on new tabs.

Quantum also sports a new UI, the first major redesign since 2011's Firefox 4. As you open more tabs in Quantum, it takes up less memory than opening up different tabs in Chrome.

Firefox 57, aka "Quantum", sports a minimalist UI - finally, a merge of the address and search bars, making it the last browser to make that move - and under the skin, significant performance improvements.

Mozilla launched a new version of its Firefox browser called Quantum the organization says is faster and more customizable than previous versions. This will be the case if you are located in the United States, Canada, Taiwan, and also Hong Kong.

That was a remarkably terse explanation after the way Mozilla and Yahoo publicized their partnership in November 2014, when they signed a multi-million dollar deal that was to run five years.

Kim Kardashian Reads Kanye West's Hilarious Mean Tweet for Jimmy Kimmel's Birthday
Jimmy Kimmel Edition segment begins with Romano himself, reading a tweet saying, " Jimmy Kimmell needs a kick to his d-k hole". The tweet dated back during the time the host was feuding with the rapper in September 2013.

What Dixon left unsaid was reported past year, when Recode and the New York Times claimed that the 2014 Yahoo-Mozilla contact gave Mozilla the right to switch to another search provider if Yahoo was sold.

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). Inc.as the default Firefox search provider in the US after Yahoo agreed to pay more than $300 million a year over five years - more than Google was willing to pay.

Business users will be able to share screenshots directly from Firefox, instead of having to save and then locate an image file before sharing.

Firefox once commanded roughly a fourth of the web browser market, but its share has slid in recent years. The site for the new version also touts the updated browser's aggressive tracking protection and built-in ad- and script-blocking features.

Private perusing mode for Firefox Quantum looks similarly on a par with customary perusing. It actually worked wonders for the browser's overall performance level, but that means I'm not seeing much in the way of big gains at the moment.

Firefox Quantum is now available as Firefox 57 for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. It took a year for Firefox to finish the undertaking.
