Firefox Quantum Download for Mac, PC and Linux Now Available

Firefox Quantum Download for Mac, PC and Linux Now Available

Firefox Quantum will be able to better leverage the multi-core processing power on the latest computers. According to Mozilla, Firefox Quantum is faster by two times from the current version you're using. It also has faster CSS engine, Stylo, for parallel processing.

Given Google's current hold in the internet browser landscape, making a splash might prove hard, but if anyone could do it, it's Firefox, which now has the gargantuan task of proving that it's miles ahead of any browser out there. For professionals who often use memory-intensive programs while browsing the web, the new Firefox Quantum could be a worthy option.

One of the biggest updates is how lightweight Quantum is in terms of RAM usage. Believe it or not, many people can not differentiate Chrome and Firefox. This standard's already supported by rival browsers and is now Firefox's extension platform too. Notably, Firefox 57 for Android is rolling out slowly, but you can sideload the app via APK Mirror. It also has a dedicated program called "Project Quantum" that explains what is to come and what Mozilla is doing to improve the browser's performance. Dubbed "Firefox Quantum", the Firefox 57 update brings an entire visual redesign and huge performance improvements. We're not surprised about this move because we only trust Google as the best search engine in the world. Users can download the new Firefox Quantum on their PC or Mac and then start importing bookmarks, history and other items from a different browser if they want to make this their default browser.

Yahoo had been the default in the United States, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

The deal with Yahoo was reportedly supposed to last for five years, but Mozilla exercised its contractual right to terminate the agreement.

Mozilla also emphasized its work on tabs.

In September, Apple added Google search as the default provider for Apple's voice-based assistant Siri, replacing Microsoft Corp.'s Bing.

Three years ago, Mozilla switched from Google to Yahoo Inc.as the Firefox search provider in the USA after Yahoo agreed to pay more than US$300 million a year for five years.

Yahoo and Google aim to recoup placement fees by selling ads alongside search results and collecting valuable user data.
