Do you ever find yourself staring at your gadget, waiting for a page to load? That can be extremely frustrating and a huge wast of time.

Think about how much more advanced today's smartphones, tablets and desktop computers are compared to just a few years ago. It's been an amazing leap forward. But to get the most out of what your gadgets can accomplish, we need software technology that can keep up.

I have good news, this new and improved browser will give you both speed and performance.

Firefox Quantum

Mozilla has been working on a major upgrade for its Firefox browser. The new Firefox Quantum is finally here and was released this week.

According to Mozilla, Firefox Quantum is powered by a new, cutting-edge engine and is twice as fast as the current version. Not only that but Quantum's new engine uses 30 percent less memory than Chrome, so other programs won't slow down during browsing.

The new Firefox browser also comes loaded with intuitive features like in-browser screenshots and more. Here are some of Quantum's features:

  • Built for speed - Quantum has a powerful, new engine that's built for rapid-fire performance.
  • Quick loading pages - Better, faster page loading that uses less computer memory.
  • New Tab - Search across multiple sites, view your top pages and discover new content.
  • Toolbar - Set up Firefox your way. Drag and drop features in and out of your toolbar for easy access.
  • Themes - Makeover Firefox to suit your mood. Choose a new look from Mozzila's theme categories or create your own.
  • Library - You can enjoy everything that you have saved to Firefox while browsing in one, easy place.
  • Extensions - Personalize Firefox with thousands of extensions like LastPass, Evernote and more.
  • Mobile browsing - Access your bookmarks, open tabs and passwords across all your devices.

Even though the new Firefox browser comes with some major upgrades, Mozilla isn't finished working on it. Another version is expected to be released early next year. We'll keep you informed of any future changes in our Happening Now section.
