With the recent launch of Firefox Quantum, the team at Mozilla overhauled the browser with a new look and a significant speed boost. Now, Mozilla is following that up with the release of Firefox 58, which adds further enhancements that should speed things up and smooth browsing out even more.
Firefox 58, Mozilla explains in a blog post, takes advantage of improvements in its engine that allow it to paint your screen using a dedicated CPU thread. The goal? To make things less janky when you're initially loading text and images on a page. According to Mozilla, the move to offloading screen painting to a dedicated CPU thread has resulted in a noticeable boost in performance, showing framerate improvements of 30 percent in its tests (from 31 fps to 40 fps).
If you already use Firefox, you can get the latest update now. New users can download Firefox Quantum directly from Mozilla.
