Firefox 57 “Quantum” Web Browser Now Available to Download, Here’s What’s New

The biggest new feature of the Firefox 57.0 “Quantum” web browser is a major visual redesign that was developed by Mozilla as the Photon project and active on the Nightly channel until now. This makes the web browser two times faster than Firefox 49.0, according to Mozilla’s development team. Other than that, Firefox Quantum comes with AMD VP9 hardware video decoder support for better video playback and lower power consumption, support for Date/Time input, the ability to manage website data, as well as support for the Accessibility indicator to be displayed in the title bar of the window.
