In case you thought Google Chrome was the king of browsers, think again. Mozilla has recently released its new browser called Firefox Quantum, and it looks extremely promising. The new version makes use of an open-source technology which might pose serious competition to Chrome.
Firefox Quantum is a worthy competitor for Chrome
On November 14th, Mozilla released the long-awaited update for Firefox. This was the first time in 13 years when the browser made any major update, and it truly was the biggest it had ever released. If you are curious to give it a try, Firefox Quantum is already available for download on Windows, but also on iOS, Android, Mac, or Linux.
Everybody should download Firefox Quantum and see what it can do, since it’s a worthy competitor for Chrome. It brings more than double the speed of the previous version, and uses 30 percent less memory than Chrome. If this didn’t convince you already, then maybe the appearance will do.
The new browser is quicker and brings a unified interface on all devices
Firefox Quantum will benefit of a new and modern user interface, which makes use of the Photon technology. The interface is created to work on any device, so that users should enjoy the same swift browsing experience on any OS or device they might use.
Among the other new things the browser brings, there is an integrated tool which can capture screenshots. Also, Pocket Recommendations will get a special extension, and the privacy feature will improve. Now, you can truly make sure your browsing stays private.
Google might not be happy about this competition thing, but it can still draw some advantages from Firefox Quantum. Mozilla made a truly big step in its evolution, as it decided to replace Yahoo as its default search engine with the almighty Google. This step might be a strategy to win some users, as Firefox benefits from only 6 percent of the browsing market in the US.
