Mozilla is finally ready to take on Chrome with a brand new version of Firefox

A couple of months ago, Mozilla started teasing a new version of the Firefox browser that would be twice as fast as the latest release and 30% lighter than Google Chrome. Dubbed Firefox Quantum, the updated browser would finally give Mozilla a fighting chance to at least regain some lost ground on Chrome, which overtook it in 2013.

On Tuesday, November 14th, Mozilla finally launched Firefox Quantum, which it calls “the biggest update we’ve had since we launched Firefox 1.0 in 2004.” Having spent some time with Quantum today, I can confirm that Mozilla’s claim is not an exaggeration — if you gave up on Firefox long ago, you’re going to want to check this out.
