Mozilla Brings Competition to Google Chrome With New Firefox Quantum Browser

Firefox Quantum 57 Is Here To Kill Google Chrome: Download For Windows, Mac, Linux Firefox Quantum arrives with faster browser engine, major visual overhaul, and Google as default search engine

Firefox Quantum definitely looks quite a bit sleeker, but it also includes a unified search bar, customizable toolbar, and built-in Pocket integration. The new engine has been parallelized and should be substantially faster, and Mozilla believes it can use its new Servo engine to enable capabilities like mixed-reality support far more easily than would've been possible in the old version. The result: a significant speed increase.

Mozilla claims that Quantum is faster than Google Chrome on a number of popular websites, including Google search, Google's login page, Wikipedia, Bing, Tumblr and Shutterstock.

The user interface also got a total overhaul, and users will notice brand new themes, tab designs and menu items. In fact, Firefox VP of Product Nick Nguyen refers to Rust as Quantum's "secret sauce", according to TNW. As before, you can sync passwords, bookmarks, and other data between Firefox installs on different devices, and the Send Tabs feature lets you instantly share open tabs between your computer, mobile, and tablet. The new browser is twice as fast the version of Firefox released in 2016.

What Dixon left unsaid was reported a year ago, when Recode and the New York Times claimed that the 2014 Yahoo-Mozilla contact gave Mozilla the right to switch to another search provider if Yahoo was sold.

Chrome's US market share has since doubled to about 60 percent, according to data from analytics provider StatCounter, with Mozilla, Apple Inc and Microsoft Corp browsers capturing the rest. In 2014, Yahoo's then-Chief Executive Officer, Marissa Mayer, lobbied heavily for the Firefox deal by agreeing to pay $375 million a year, according to regulatory filings. The company said 369 bugs related to performance and responsiveness have been fixed, along with 1,190 software bugs "related to the user experience". Instead, the recommendations come from Pocket users around the world.

Until 2011, Firefox held second-place in the global internet browser market share behind Internet Explorer. The site for the new version also touts the updated browser's aggressive tracking protection and built-in ad- and script-blocking features. "It would have to be so unique". It actually worked wonders for the browser's overall performance level, but that means I'm not seeing much in the way of big gains at the moment. It took a year for Firefox to finish the undertaking.
