Firefox just released a new ultra-fast web browser to take on Google Chrome

Mozilla's latest browser — Firefox Quantum — is lightning fast, sleek, and ready to handle all six zillion of your tabs after almost two months in beta. 

 
 

Nick Nguyen, Firefox's vice president of product, told Mashable his biggest fear: Will the Internet full of Google Chrome-enthusiasts give it a chance?

"My biggest fear is that people won't try it," he said. "It's like any release — you do this to make people's lives better. If people aren't using your product, you don't have an opportunity to do that." 

And the folks at Firefox have big plans. Nguyen won't rest until Quantum overtakes Google Chrome to become the average internet user's primary browser. "Today, people use Firefox as their secondary browser," he told Mashable. "We think it's good enough to be your first browser."

There's only one way to find out. So come on, close Chrome for two seconds and give it a try. 

This browser is really, really fast. In a test conducted with the open-source project WebPageTest, Firefox Quantum loaded a number of top websites before Chrome did, including Yelp, Shutterstock, Ask.com and even Google Search itself. (Chrome was still, of course, faster to load most Google and Youtube pages). 

 

The browser also uses around 30% less memory than its competitors Chrome, Edge, and Safari on Windows operating systems, and only uses a tiny bit more than Chrome on macOS. This means you can run 30% more tabs without your browser crashing or slowing to a crawl. 

But where the company hopes its browser will stand out the most is in the interface. The company extensively researched the way users navigate browsers, and Firefox Quantum has a number of small, but significant features to accommodate those patterns. 

For example, according to Nguyen, users are a lot more impatient when waiting for the content of a page to load than they are for for graphics or sidebars. Consequently, Firefox Quantum loads the content of a website before loading any logos or graphics. It also loads your active tab before any other tabs — people overwhelmingly focus on one tab at a time. 

Above all else, according to Nguyen, users want a browser that is fast and easy. "They want a browser that stays out of the way," he said. "They don't want to housekeep."

Speed and ease have long been the categories where Google Chrome has taken the lead. But Firefox Quantum may soon be hot on its tail. Seriously, just try it.

    hey there and thank you for your information – I have definitely

    experienced to reload the site a lot of times previous to I could get it to load correctly.
    I had been wondering if your web host is OK?

    Not that I'm complaining, but slow loading instances times will
    sometimes affect your placement in google and can damage your high quality
    score if advertising and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS to my e-mail

    I think everything said was very logical.
    But, what about this? suppose you composed a
    catchier title? I ain't saying your content is not good., however suppose you added something to maybe get folk's attention? I mean RainDesigner - Firefox just released a new ultra-fast web browser to take
    on Google Chrome is a little vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create post
    titles to get viewers interested. You might add a related video or a
    picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've written. In my opinion, it
    could make your blog a little livelier.
