Mozilla plans to release a new web engine for its Firefox browser next year that should load websites superfast and should provide an improved user experience. The new engine is called Quantum and the browser developer claims it will be a giant leap forward on browser performance.

Why not ad a option to block ads by user option… that would do more to improve CPU and GPU performance.

Hmm… I have somewhat mixed feelings about this. On one hand, I love the Gecko engine, given the large number of websites that are compatible with it. On the other hand, I find that Firefox uses one entire core of CPU, while the other cores almost completely idle, which makes web pages slow to load, especially if you are trying to load multiple pages at once.

We’ll see how well this pans out. Hopefully, the newer Quantum engine will allow Firefox to run faster, use less RAM/CPU, will retain compatibility various websites, and will still work will most (if not all) addons. However, I realize there’s no guarantee that any of the above will happen.

They should better focus on ram usage and basic html processing!

My Telstra modem’s web UI was a real problem for Firefox and I was wondering all the time what’s wrong - since being on Chrome no such problems any more and I dumped FF from my system altogether!

And improving usage of multiple core CPU that would improve performance by a whole margin as well. Also include user ability to block adware site and popup or as I do use my PC hosts edit that more or less helps kill popups and adware to reduce CPU/RAM usage that at home helps my surf faster and view sites without having it overload the CPU/RAM to point it stops or freezes or crashes. It takes a bit of effort to use PC hosts edit but when it is all done you can enjoy the internet like in the days before adware started hounding you where you go.
