Firefox Quantum beta promises to double your browser speeds

Posted September 28, 2017

Only an initial phase of Project Quantum has been completed so far, but Mozilla said that the new changes have already made Firefox twice as fast as it was a year ago.

Now Mozilla Firefox delivered another hit for this plug in.

When you open a new tab, you'll see now trending web pages recommended by Pocket users in addition to your top sites. No other browser can do this.
