If you're a Chrome user (or a Lifehacker reader), you're probably aware of how much memory the web browser uses. A lot of work has been done, such as implementing the new CSS engine written in Rust programming language, adding parallel processing capabilities to leverage multi-core CPUs which are a common sight nowadays.

Mozilla says that Firefox Quantum will feel speedier when you browse your favorite websites, thanks to faster page loading, smoother scrolling, and a more responsive user interface.

Quantum is also designed for heavy browsing with multiple tabs or windows.

Did you ditch Firefox a while ago after feeling that it was slowing down compared to rival browsers like Chrome? Mozilla says that Quantum represents major changes to the browser's most basic components, including its CSS and JavaScript engines.

Mozilla has released Firefox Quantum, a browser that it claims is twice as fast as the original Firefox and faster than Google Chrome on certain sites.

It was, to Verizon, which this summer completed a $4.5 billion acquisition of the former Internet giant. The past few years haven't been a high point for Mozilla and its community. Inc.as the default Firefox search provider in the US after Yahoo agreed to pay more than $300 million a year over five years - more than Google was willing to pay. Firefox once accounted for a quarter of the world's user share, but dipped as low as 8% in the summer of 2016. All versions of Firefox now have a 9.1 percent market share, below IE + Edge and Safari.

"No. I just can't see it at this point", said Jack Gold, principal analyst at J. Gold Associates. The biggest selling point, though, is the sheer speed of its latest update to the browser.

What are your views on Firefox Quantum?

"Anyone who downloads this version, which is so advanced we call it "Firefox Quantum", simply can't help but notice the speed, performance improvements, and the responsively slick new UI", wrote David Bryant in a Medium post Tuesday. It took a year for Firefox to finish the undertaking.
