Mozilla has decided to name Firefox 57, Firefox Quantum, to highlight the changes in speed in this release. The new browser will be released on November 14 2017 if everything goes well with the development schedule.
The Mozilla Foundation has reportedly used its (its) benchmark Speedometer 2.0 to compare it Firefox 52, μια έκδοση του Firefox κυκλοφόρησε τον Μάρτιο του 2017, με το Firefox 57 ή Firefox Quantum μια έκδοση που προς το παρόν είναι διαθέσιμη μόνο στο κανάλι Beta και Developer.
We should mention that SpeedNet 2.0 is still under development, but the results show that many things have been improved in Firefox 57 compared to earlier versions of the browser.
A publishing on the official blog Mozilla reveals how developers have made Firefox Quantum so fast. One of the key changes is the efficient use of the multi-core CPU, for example, when you open multiple pages.
This improved use of computer hardware makes Firefox Quantum dramatically faster. But the upcoming Firefox will include other improvements, always according to the Mozilla Foundation, such as priorities in the tabs running in the foreground, and a multi-process architecture.
According to the Mozilla Foundation, the upcoming release fixes 468 errors detected by Firefox developers.
