1Firefox 57 Takes Quantum Leap Forward in Speed and Looks
Mozilla is aiming to regain both mind and market share with its next major release of its open-source Firefox web browser, which is scheduled to become generally available on Nov. 14. Firefox 57 is known as Quantum and includes a new user interface, improved performance and features that differentiate it from past Firefox releases. The new user interface, called Photon, provides users with a modern theme. Also of note is the bump in speed, with Firefox 57 loading pages faster than ever before, according to Mozilla. Under the hood, Firefox 57 is powered by multiple new technologies, including the open-source Rust programming language and the Quantum Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) layout engine. In this slide show, eWEEK looks at some of the key new features in the Firefox 57 Quantum release.
