Mozilla launches Firefox Quantum, its fastest browser ever

Mozilla launches Firefox Quantum, its fastest browser ever

Thanks to the new (and overdue) Mozilla-made Multi-Account Container extension, you won't have to worry about remembering which account you're logged into.

Mozilla's latest major update for Firefox is here, and it brings with it a major speed boost, a new look, and more. To take advantage of its syncing features that ensure you can access your Firefox browsing history and other preferences on its iOS and Android apps, as you do with your Google account, you'll need a Firefox Account.

The only down side - or potential down side, if you consider it as such - is the addition of "Recommendations" in the Firefox startup page.

Again!?! April the Giraffe could be pregnant
On Friday, Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch said he could not confirm or deny that April the giraffe is pregnant. But last month, zoo officials did hint that love was in the air for April and her mate Oliver.

"We call this initiative Photon, and its goal is to modernize and unify anything that we call Firefox while taking advantage of the speedy new engine", the team explained. But it lost momentum as Google Chrome, which is the leading US browser on desktops, gained new users.

Those who already use Firefox should receive an automatic upgrade to Quantum after restarting their browser. "In fact, nearly 75% of the Firefox code was impacted all to give you a browser that is fast, intuitive and modern on all of your devices". It additionally surpasses the execution of Google Chrome in a program speed test fight.

The Quantum moniker comes from Mozilla's new browser-engine, Project Quantum, that is powering the Firefox 57 release. Early next year should also see the rollout of a new GPU-accelerated rendering engine.

Kim's daughter North West was dressed up in an oh-so sweet Chinese-style dress and fuzzy slippers. If she is pregnant, she's doing a great job of hiding it.

The name Quantum was originally the developers code name for all of the UI work, but as time progressed they realized that what they were working on was going to be a totally new product and thus needed a new name.

The Photon UI has also been streamlined compared to previous versions of Firefox, and is created to provide smooth and fast performance when browsing your favorite websites.

Mozilla has officially launched the fastest version of its Firefox browser yet.

Nelson says she quit her job, but later told her sister, mom and husband, who both backed up her story to Allred. In the statement, Roskam said his office took allegations of sexual assault and harassment "very seriously".

Beyond that, there are also three variations on the default theme, depending on whether you prefer the inactive tab to be the same color as the titlebar - in the default setting -, a more muted shade of grey, or dark grey, with the last one being particularly suited for work at night. "Our designers created a system that scales to more than just current hardware but lets us expand in the future".
