Firefox Quantum
« on: November 17, 2017, 09:59:32 AM »
Anyone testing Firefox Quantum ?

It uses all available cores and is really fast.

As it is a beta, it does have some bugs.

It doesn't support my favorite addon (classic theme restorer), so I am carefully keeping portable apps  from updating to it.  Can't stand the chrome and clones interface.

How many ways can you customize the toolbar in the new Firefox?

    There are 265,252,859,191,742,656,903,069,040,640,000 more ways to customize the new Firefox toolbar right out of the box!

Now I am deeply impressed! What a pity that I just moved to PaleMoon because FF always slowed down my machine with its greed for memory 8)

The new Quantum version of Firefox seems ( so far ) a great improvement over prior versions. It seems to be as fast as Chrome now and starts up much quicker than old versions. The prior version of Firefox would always crash during long youtube "live streams" and I haven't had that problem with Quantum. So far , so good ..

Slimjet, no "Gurgle" telemetry (spyware) and genuinely fast.  :biggrin: Firefox lost it years ago, I don't even keep a copy of it on my machines any longer.
