Greater speed with less memory promises Mozilla with its new browser, Firefox Quantum, which has which has caused a sensation in the special press.

Firefox Quantum was launched on November 14th. As Mark Mayo, vice president of Mozilla, wrote in a blogpost, it has been the biggest update ever since Firefox 1.0 was released in 2004. Mayo says it has a speed twice as fast as Firefox six months ago, with a completely refreshed engine and appearance,

“Designed to get out of the way and let you do what you do best: Surf to a lot of pages, open countless tabs, all without guilt, because Firefox Quantum uses less memory than competitors.”

Mozilla emphasizes on the New User Interface:

“We call this initiative Photon, and the aim is to modernize and consolidate all those which characterize Firefox, while exploiting the fast new machine”

writes Mayo.

For the purposes of developing Photon, we examined how users are browsing the web.

“We looked at real hardware to make Firefox look fine on every screen, and we’ve made sure that Firefox looks and works like Firefox, no matter what device you’re using.”

Mozilla also points out that the whole system has been set up to expand it into the future, going beyond the current hardware.

As mentioned in a publication of Mashable, the browser uses about 30% less memory than its competitors, Chrome, Edge, Safari on Windows and a little more from Chrome on MacOS.

Generally speaking, however, Mozilla also seems to be “betting” to a large extent on the interface, since emphasis has been placed on “getting out of the way” when the user browses the Internet, loading the content of a page and the active tabs first. In general, comments in the special press are positive, with reviewers praising its speed and usability – although many keep a standstill about whether it could actually “dethrone” popular Chrome. Most, however, seem to recommend users unreservedly, if anything, to test it.
