Firefox Quantum is Mozilla's supercharged attempt to topple Chrome

Mozilla have released a beta of the Firefox Quantum browser and you can find out more details about it at the link below.

Firefox Quantum is powered by a new proprietary CSS engine, Quantum CSS, which claims to incorporate a feature called "style sharing cache", inspired by Chrome and Safari, to further speed up the browser and reduce the RAM it demands.

The use of Mozilla's own Rust programming language is also among the new features in Quantum.

The new browser, called Firefox Quantum, will be released and automatically update on November 14, but it's available today in beta and developer editions. Among the updates, says Mozilla, is the ability to use multiple cores - something Firefox hasn't done in the past.

"This improved utilization of your computer's hardware makes Firefox Quantum dramatically faster", Mozilla said.

EAGLES NOTEBOOK: Blount, Smallwood revive Philadelphia's running game
Because of Elliott, the Eagles are 2-1 (2-0 in the NFC East ) instead of 1-2 (1-1 in the division) if the Giants had scored in OT. The Eagles' 193 rushing yards were their most since they rushed for 208 in their Week 10 win over the Falcons previous year .

"Firefox Quantum feels right at home with today's mouse and touch-driven operating systems: Windows 10, macOS High Sierra, Android Oreo, and iOS 11", Mozilla said. Nevertheless, browsers continue to support it so that users can access legacy sites and content that never bothered to update. This can be a good strategy to lower memory usage, but it remains to be seen if it also offers similar security to Chrome in the long term. Firefox 57, as it's sequentially known, is such a drastic improvement over its predecessor that Mozilla has christened it Firefox Quantum. But before that, we'll get Firefox 56 later this week.

The "New Tab" page has also been redesigned to include an "Activity Stream" that will include highlights from your recent history and bookmarks, as well as recommendations from Pocket, an application that manages articles you've saved to read later. Mozilla noted that the New Tab page can still be customized by users via add-ons.

The Chrome browser is now the leading USA browser with 44.5% market share, according to research from the US government's Digital Government Division, as reported by tech news site ZDNet earlier this year. The new rendering engine is called Quantum Render and is based on Servo's WebRender.

The plumbing isn't the only thing that will be changing in Firefox 57. As we can see from an older benchmark, it looks quite promising.

Who global CSS improvements-engine and tweaked the algorithm works with multiple tabs (the now open tab has priority in loading over that which you are looking at) do Firefox Quantum really comfortable and preferred method of immersion in the Network.
