Mozilla announces its fastest Firefox browser in beta; calls it Firefox Quantum

Quantum introduces the

Ahead of Firefox Quantum's release, Mozilla's developers have removed 468 bugs that may have impeded the browser's new speed capabilities. The company is calling this the fastest Firefox ever and is highlighting the new features making Firefox feel like a newer, faster, and better browser.

Mozilla's next major browser update has arrived. For widely used add-ons that don't work in the new version, Firefox will recommend alternatives.

Quantum, also known as Firefox 57, is a serious step up from the previous version, and Mozilla claims you'll notice the difference immediately when browsing your favorite sites.

Firefox Quantum also prioritizes the tab you're now using, so it downloads and runs before those in the background, cutting RAM usage by around 30%. The new massive beta release is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android.

We've shipped a lot already, but we've been planning for many more projects to come together in Firefox Quantum.

More improvements are in the pipeline for later Firefox versions, too, including Quantum Render, which should speed up Firefox's ability to paint web pages onto your screen.

Last October we announced Project Quantum, our effort to create a next-generation engine for modern computers, by leveraging technology from our Servo research project. We're confident that with Photon, Firefox Quantum users will be impressed by the modern new design that puts their needs first. Menus, for example, will change size based on whether you're clicking with a mouse or tapping with a finger.

Photon also introduces square tabs, smooth animations and a library where you'll find saved content like downloads and screenshots. Complement the list of individual characteristics interface Photon with adaptation for displays with high DPI, and automatic scaling features of the touch input.

Mozilla has released the Firefox 57 beta, a completely overhauled browser that will be called Firefox Quantum when it launches in stable form next month.

In addition to the performance improvements, Mozilla is also introducing refined and rebuilt UI for Firefox. You can get the desktop, Android, and iOS versions from Mozilla's website.

Mozilla is planning to release Firefox 57 on November 17. As part of its Project Photon initiative, Mozilla will rid of the ugly curved tab design now seen in Firefox and will able to take advantage of high-resolution screens.
