Firefox 57 Will Blow Your Socks Off [Comic]

Seriously, have you tried the new version of Firefox? The browser is actually quite a bit faster than Chrome. Try it.

It’s fast. Really fast. Firefox Quantum is over twice as fast as Firefox from 6 months ago, built on a completely overhauled core engine with brand new technology stolen from our advanced research group, and graced with a beautiful new look designed to get out of the way and let you do what you do best: surf a ton of pages, open a zillion tabs, all guilt free because Firefox Quantum uses less memory than the competition. Your computer will thank you.

  1. I uninstalled Quantum and reinstalled an earlier version because they changed so much that I could no longer use the majority of my addons. That might not sound like such a big deal, but I use some of those addons a lot, including to search for jobs. I tried to find other addons that did the same thing at first, but I didn’t find any so I decided that uninstalling Quantum, installing an older version of Firefox, and telling Firefox not to look for updates was what was right for me. However, Firefox is determined to install Quantum, so I’m keeping the installer for the old version so I can uninstall Quantum every time it is installed. Maybe, someday, if Quantum can work with my addons, I’ll let it stay installed, but for now I will keep uninstalling it and putting on an older version.

    • I am in the exact same boat. I read all my blogs and many newspapers using RSS feeds and the fantastic reader Sage. Sage loads in the sidebar, highlights when new content is available, and formats posts in easy to read blocks in the browser itself.

      But Quantum killed off the sidebar, and Sage no longer works. I’ve never found an RSS reader that compares, and so no Quantum for me.

  2. It still doesn’t like Flash. Still gives me a message saying that it will slow down my browser. Thankfully there is Chrome for when I need to run Flash.

  3. Here are a few reasons for why no one’s switching to Firefox:

    – “Less slow” is not the same as “fast” – I switched to Chromium about two weeks ago because Firefox was literally unusable – switching to an open tab would often as long as half a minute to render the page (and that’s just with three or so tabs open, not talking about dozens of tabs) – and has been so for over a year now

    – Mozilla’s “our way or GTFO” attitude – in the last ~two years, Mozilla seems to have stopped caring about the users’ opinion, as every time the userbase rejected some proposed change, the devs went ahead with it regardless, which alienated a lot of the poweruser community
    — And yes, a lot of these changes increased the security, but one of the main reasons people used Firefox was because of the extensions, and when half of those extensions stop working overnight because a new Firefox version broke everything, people will start looking elsewhere
