Mozilla Firefox Quantum browser launched for Android and iOS

Using the Private Window in Firefox and the Incognito Mode in Chrome we loaded up and timed how long it took.

To celebrate the launch of Firefox Quantum, Mozilla is offering ferry service for three days in New York City. Mozilla says that it wants to make Firefox the fastest browser on the planet for PCs and mobile devices, and it says that improvements are still on the way for the rest of 2017.

Google Chrome is the king in the browsers war but the Mozilla Firefox also has dazzling users.

With all the good news and announcements, Mozilla is launching a new Firefox campaign. Additionally, Google will also become the new default search provider in the United States and Canada.

Mozilla on Tuesday, November 14 (November 15, Manila time) released Firefox 57, the latest version of the Firefox browser which they have also dubbed Firefox Quantum.

"It's by far the biggest update we've had since we launched Firefox 1.0 in 2004, it's just flat out better in every way".

Firefox Quantum is Mozilla's big push to regain its market share from Google Chrome. Mozilla believes that the Firefox Quantum will be an attempt to a fresh start.

The new Firefox deal could boost Google's already massive share of the web-search market.

In total, more than 700 authors contributed to code development, with an additional 80 volunteers also offering a helping hand.

Quantum now comes with a new CSS engine called Quantum CSS or Stylo.

The company says that to create Photon, the brand conducted a research that studied how people browsed the web.

Among the user-oriented features is the integration of Pocket, which Mozilla acquired in February, that lets users save articles and other content to a personal reading list.

It is unknown just how much Mozilla was compensated by Google to make the change, but in its previous contract with Yahoo, it was being paid $375 million per year.
