Firefox Quantum

Recommended Posts

If you are not aware, Mozilla has released a new browser called Quantum on the 15th or 16th of Nov. 2017. I was not online yesterday, so just saw it today. Anyone use it yet, any thoughts, etc. anyone would like to share. I just downloaded it at work but nhot sure when I will get to work on it.

OK, Update. I did install "It" and it is really just the next version of firefox, not a seperate browser as I had understood. So when you update from FF 56 to FF 57, you will have Quantum.

There are some new things right off the bat:

  • Book marks and Pocket are not in the address bar
  • If you are missing add-ons, there is now a seperate page for "Legacy Add-ons" where you will find them, it is just an addition on the add-ons page.

If you red the announcement I posted, there is a link to a speed test from Mozilla: https://mozilla.github.io/arewefastyet-speedometer/2.0/

In my testing, in all three tests I ran. Maxthon 5 Cloud Browser was the fastest, followed by Chrome and then Firefox Quantum.

That said, as it is an upgrade there may be legacy crap slowing it down. I may just remove firefox and reinstall quantum and run the tests again.

No, Fresh install of Quantom after deleting all profiles and firefox stuff and it is still slower than Maxthon 5 and Chrome. Anyone having a different outcome?
