Introducing the New Firefox: Firefox Quantum

It’s fast. Really fast. Firefox Quantum is over twice as fast as Firefox from 6 months ago, built on a completely overhauled core engine with brand new technology stolen from our advanced research group, and graced with a beautiful new look designed to get out of the way and let you do what you do best: surf a ton of pages, open a zillion tabs, all guilt free because Firefox Quantum uses less memory than the competition. Your computer will thank you.

I noticed this morning it was updated on my Virtual Machine. I've been running FireFox on computers with weaker specs since it isn't such a resource hog like Chrome.

Does anyone use FF as their daily browser? My grandpa has to in order to play FarmTown. Chrome blocks Flash by default now and it's a PITA to help him fix that so I just told him to start using FF.

I'm giving it a good test. It did seem extremely fast upon first use last night.

I used to use FireFox all the time on my old laptop but now use Chrome.
