Firefox Quantum is over twice as fast as Firefox from 6 months ago, built on a completely overhauled core engine with brand new technology stolen from our advanced research group, and graced with a attractive new look created to get out of the way and let you do what you do best: surf a ton of pages, open a zillion tabs, all guilt free because Firefox Quantum uses less memory than the competition.
Mozilla suggested earlier today that they'd been spending a massive amount of time editing code between their most recent update and now. Firefox Quantum features a faster CSS engine written in Rust that runs quickly, in parallel across multiple CPU cores, instead of running in one slower sequence on a single core. Of course the company can't steal from itself, which means Mozilla tried to do a quick joke whilst announcing their new web browser. In a browser speed test video that Mozilla posted to the site, the new Firefox beat out Chrome in loading a few big name websites like Yelp and Shutterstock as well.
Apple Watch retakes lead of wearables market, Xiaomi second
The report attributes part the success to the new Apple Watch Series 3, which hit global sales as high as 3.9 million. That must help, for Apple now ships a Watch for every seven iPhone 7 or 8 models it shifts, according to Canalys.
The search platform Firefox works with is up to the end user - you can set your default, as always. As noted by ZDNet's Liam Tung, the release marks Mozilla's big push to win back users who may have jumped ship for Google Chrome. Quantum will also have 60 search providers pre-installed across more than 90 languages which, according to Mozilla, is the largest variety of search providers when compared to any other browser. That performance increase is complemented by an architecture upgrade that, according to the company, uses 30% less memory than Google Chrome.
The only down side - or potential down side, if you consider it as such - is the addition of "Recommendations" in the Firefox startup page. The Private Browsing feature will automatically block all trackers, and won't store browser history, the site said. It also comes with integrations with read-it-later service, Pocket. The browser has also been modified to prioritise the tab you are working on over all other open tabs. "They're curated from the millions of items being saved to Pocket every day, so they do a great job of representing what's worth reading and watching on the web".
Eden will be a good wicket, says Sourav Ganguly
India being the favourites against the islanders, in all probability, Kohli should surpass Ganguly during the three-Test rubber. I always think that if I improve on one shot at the nets, I will be better off in the game.
Web: Firefox users bouncing between work and personal accounts on a daily basis are probably exhausted of logging in and out, or switching accounts. Moreover, a new three-dot menu has been added to the URL bar, which contains shortcuts to copy or email a link, send the active tab to a device - using Firefox Sync -, or take a screenshot.
McLaren 720S gets Dubai-themed MSO makeover
Customising the vehicle from a standard 720S took more than 120 hours, with 30 of those spent on the rear spoiler alone. Making its official debut at the Dubai Motor Show, this McLaren 720S was commissioned as a bespoke creation.
Mozilla doesn't break out the exact numbers for Firefox, though the company does say "half a billion people around the world" use the browser. All the mobile browsers are getting is an update to their UI.
