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.

It’s time to give Firefox a fresh chance

For those who like to improve privacy there is an extension for firefox called "Multi-Account Containers" you can create different containers for different websites. So you can have one for facebook or twitter and their cookies won't be shared.

Here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... ontainers/

Firefox Multi-Account Containers lets you keep parts of your online life separated into color-coded tabs that preserve your privacy. Cookies are separated by container, allowing you to use the web with multiple identities or accounts simultaneously.

Nope. For no reason other than Google has me in their pocket
