It’s been a long time since Mozilla broke the majority of the Internet Explorer in Browser space and dethroned the king. It’s been a long time since Mozilla has done that, and Google ousted them with their Chrome Browser. It’s still not the bad time for Mozilla as Firefox is the second most popular web browser currently used by millions of people. After launching Firefox Quantum, which is the lightweight and faster version of the Firefox browser. Now, with version 67, Firefox browser does come with significantly faster speed for loading web pages and also protecting the privacy of the users.

With the improvements, the popular sites are loaded 40 to 80 percent faster than the usual, making the browsing experience smoother. From now on, the browser will suspend the idle tabs to free up the memory, and the active tabs will load faster. After the independent testings, it is confirmed that Chrome and Firefox are now at par in performance.
