Mozilla Firefox 58 Beta 6
Mozilla has switched Firefox to a fast-release development cycle, which means the new version will be more frequent. This nonprofit has pledged to launch a new stable version every six weeks.
The latest Mozilla Firefox Nightly is now tested on Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. This beta includes performance enhancements to improve the user’s browsing experience and enable developers to create faster Web applications and websites.
what is new:
Last October, we announced Project Quantum, and we worked hard to create the next generation of engines. Firefox 57 includes many aspects of this project, so we call this version Firefox Quantum.
Due to its new CSS engine, a “just right” multi-process architecture that prioritizes the way your activity labels, Firefox Quantum is about twice as fast as Firefox 49 in the Speedometer 2.0 benchmark. Firefox Quantum also includes a visual refresh – photon – that looks and feels just like home at modern operating systems. To learn more about Firefox Quantum, visit the Mozilla blog.
