Mozilla, however, is now back with a brand new browser that is called Firefox Quantum.
Combine this with the speed and efficiency improvements and Firefox could well be making a lot of new friends in 2017/18.
"We’re confident that with Photon," Mozilla added, "Firefox Quantum users will be impressed by the modern new design that puts their needs first.
If you’re using Photon on a Windows PC with a touch display, the menus change size based on whether you click with a mouse or touch with a finger.” The new design also features plenty of aesthetic changes; things like square tabs, smooth animations, and a Library, which provides quick access to your saved stuff: bookmarks, Pocket, history, downloads, tabs, and screenshots.
Firefox Quantum is available now in beta and it will also work on Android and iOS, as well as desktop PCs and Macs.
