In a dramatic turn of events, Mozilla recently released a new version of its Firefox Quantum browser on Tuesday. This browser is expected to increase graphics speed of the interface, coupled with improvements in various technologies that are designed to make the overall search based tasks more powerful.
Firefox Aims to Stay in the Competition with Newest Update
Mozilla’s Firefox Quantum is named as version 58, and is a top update of the company ever since the Quantum browser was released in November. As per reports, Mozilla Firefox is becoming more competitive with other browsers such as Google Chrome and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. With Firefox Quantum 58’s release, Mozilla aims to improve the overall browser’s speed, by splitting work between multiple processor cores. Rather, the firm wants to reach the point where all the search based tasks and related results are carried out in a smooth and uninterrupted manner.
According to reports, the new update has managed to bring in more users to Firefox, from both new as well returning categories. Firefox 58 has implemented two new web technologies into its domain. One is called the WebAssembly, which can provide substantially fast web apps. This browser can get WebAssembly software to run at high speeds, so that the people searching for anything on the web do not have to wait for long. The second technology is called the progressive web apps (PWAs), which was actually derived by Firefox from Google Chrome’s efforts to provide a better match through the web for all the apps which are downloaded on phones. With this technology now incorporated into their new update, Firefox present on Android phones provides the user with an option to convert a properly packaged website into an app icon on the user’s phone home screen. Users just need to tap the browser-based app, which expands onto the entire screen, without any additional distractions such as an address bar, or any other display element.
