    Firefox Quantum

    As a long time Firefox user, I was excited to see what was going on with this.

    It's pretty bloody quick.

    I use firefox normally, what's the difference over vanilla firefox?
    All the features it's listing are already in regular firefox

    Mainly that it's been rebuilt, it's a bunch faster, less resource intensive and had a bit of a facelift.

    Sounds good, I will probably make the switch soon, I'm sure they'll be trying to migrate standard firefox users over to it at some point anyway.

    Wow ok, that was easy
    It sure is snappy and I really like the extra customisation features they've added, you can make it look completely different to a regular browser if you really want
