For a long time Quantum was the code name for the upcoming revolutionary version 57, but the name Firefox 57 just doesn’t do justice to the momentous changes that are coming in November. So, Mozilla decided to mark the occasion by giving this special release a special name: Firefox Quantum.

Firefox Quantum

Also, it features a whole new user interface called Photon UI. Last, but not least it marks the depart from the old extension system and the adoption of the new web extension standard.
