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.
For those out of the loop, Firefox Quantum is the culmination of the past years’ efforts to bring the browser up to par with Chrome (and beyond) in terms of performance. 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.
All this will make Firefox competitive again, ready for the future and able to compete with Google’s browser. Find out more about Firefox Quantum.
