Firefox used to be a great browser. Then it wasn't. Which was sad because Mozilla, the company that makes Firefox, is a non-profit and cares about privacy and doing good on the internet. They just launched Firefox Quantum which seems to run much faster and uses less RAM and doesn't track you like Chrome and some of the other browsers. Worth taking a look at again.

I got it last night - agree, much,much faster and smaller footprint. Good to see, finally.

It is faster and apparently more secure. I confess I am not keen on the new look. BUT they have removed FireFTP which is an essential tool I use daily.
