Mozilla, Firefox Quantum

Posted: Updated:
(WALA) -

Browser maker Mozilla hopes to regain some momentum with the release of a souped-up version of its flagship Firefox browser.

Mozilla released a test version of its upcoming Firefox Quantum web browser this week in preparation for its upcoming official debut in November.  The company is pitching its upcoming Firefox Quantum browser as its fastest yet!

And, get this, you can get the desktop, Android and iOS versions from Mozilla's website right now.

The new browser boasts an interface redesign featuring square tabs, menus that change size based on whether you're clicking with a mouse or a finger, extensions, and your browsing history, downloads, bookmarks, and screenshots consolidated in a "library."

Quantum will also incorporate the popular news and article reader app Pocket.  Mozilla says when people open browser tabs, they will see a list of recommended web pages by other Pocket users that are currently trending.

Firefox was one of the fastest growing Internet browsers during the late 2000's.  But Google Chrome practically owns the web browser market right now; roughly 55 percent share of the market!  Safari is a long way behind in second place.  And Firefox is, well, even further behind.  Which is why Mozilla has pulled out all of the stops for Firefox 57.

Current users of Firefox will automatically upgrade to the Quantum browser when it officially debuts on Nov. 14.  If you'd like to see what the future holds for Firefox, download it and try it out for yourself.
