Mozilla has unveiled its new “incredibly fast and smooth” Firefox Quantum browser, offering features that could see the open-sourced technology compete with Google Chrome.
The success of this browser is due to several aspects, such as the fact of being an open-source development, its performance, its evolution, or its add-on system that has been copied by other applications.
Firefox Quantum is an independent web browser that offers tabbed browsing combined with numerous handy features like pop-up blocking, Live Bookmarks (RSS integration), password manager, and more.
The first change to come into view is a new and different homepage with several improvements at the interface level, although the real magic takes place in the browser’s insides. Firefox has finally made use of the CPU’s multiple cores to offer a faster render with a lower resource consumption.
While you await our tests in the upcoming biannual comparison that we’re currently putting together, the official Mozilla blog claims that RAM use on Firefox is now 30% less than Chrome uses under the same conditions.
Quantum was a project open to volunteers, with about 700 authors contributing to the code. It took a year for Firefox to complete the project.
