Mozilla launches the new Firefox Quantum browser for Android and iOS

A new Firefox browser is now available for mobile devices, one that's twice as fast as Firefox from 6 months ago, Mozilla claims. Dubbed Firefox Quantum, the new browser is available on Android and iOS platforms, but also on Windows, Mac and Linux.
The most important improvement over any of the previous versions of Firefox is speed. Quantum is much faster than any Mozilla browsers launched in the past and, according to the developer, looks better than ever.
Firefox Quantum comes with a new UI (user interface), which is called Photon. Once again, Mozilla says Photon UI is very fast and smooth thanks to the speedy new engine.
Also, Google is now the default search provider in the United States and Canada. Speaking of search providers, Mozilla says that Firefox Quantum has more than 60 of those pre-installed across more than 90 languages.
Although this is a major release, Mozilla promises to add even more improvements and new features in the not so distant future. So, while Firefox Quantum offers the complete browsing experience, the app will be constantly updated to further enhance the overall experience.

I have been using it today on Windows and the speed and fluidity are a quantum leap over the old Firefox and perceptibly better than Chrome. In fact, the fluidity is often too great and I overshoot. The biggest problem is deprecated "legacy" apps, especially TabMixPlus. The Android version hasn't shown up for me yet but I have high hopes for it.
