The Mozilla Firefox Quantum Browser has been officially released

Up to 2x faster than older Firefox versions while reducing memory usage.

Once they broke the extensions that are important for those of us who use the internet for more nefarious purposes than regular people, I stopped paying attention.

The move to chrome-esque view was bad enough. This whole redefining is pointless until they stop dicking about with extensions.

The move to WebExtensions was inevitable and they'd have only been left behind otherwise. Though a more graceful end to traditional Firefox extensions would have been good.

The idea however, is that extensions will be cross compatible with all major browsers, potentially even on mobile browsers!

I had so many performance issues with Firefox. Moving to Chrome mitigated almost all of them. It was so much smoother. I missed certain features from Firefox, but Chrome had its own benefits. I'm contented at the moment. Chrome Sync is causing Malware Bytes to register a fault, but other than that it's working smoothly.

Brave is probably the best for privacy, one of the people working on Brave was actually an original Firefox developer and developer of Javascript. It has built in ad blocker/cookie blocker etc. Brave can take some fiddling to get it right, it's still in development too, but it's pretty clean and is very fast.

Firefox is apparently going to be working to scan for "fake news" with some SJW company that's why I stopped using it.
