The next Firefox: Firefox Quantum
« on: November 15, 2017, 10:05:11 pm »
The folks at Firefox have just unveiled the next version of Firefox which they've dubbed Firefox Quantum. So they've got the cool new name covered, and have made some pretty big claims (like it being twice as fast as their last version) and does all this while using less memory than the competition. 

Will this be enough to gain back some market share? Only time will tell.

   The first thing you’ll notice is the speed. Go on, open some tabs and have some fun. The second thing you’ll notice is the new User Interface (UI). 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. You guessed it: the Photon UI itself is incredibly fast and smooth. To create Photon, our user research team studied how people browsed the web. We looked at real world hardware to make Firefox look great on any display, and we made sure that Firefox looks and works like Firefox regardless of the device you’re using. Our designers created a system that scales to more than just current hardware but lets us expand in the future. Plus, our Pocket integration goes one step further, which includes Pocket recommendations alongside your most visited pages.
