2x faster

Powered by a new, cutting-edge engine, Firefox has doubled its speed from last year. Because the Internet waits for no one.

Lean, mean speed machine

Firefox Quantum’s new engine uses 30% less memory than Chrome, so other programs won’t slow down during browsing. Now that’s a win-win.

Beautiful, intelligent design

Hello, gorgeous! Firefox’s sleek, new look comes loaded with intuitive features like in-browser screenshots and more.

New Tab

Search across multiple sites, view your top pages and discover new content.

Powerful privacy

You’re in control of your online information. Use Firefox Private Browsing to block ads with trackers for extra peace of mind… and pages that load up to 44% faster.

Browse for good

Firefox is backed by the non-profit Mozilla, who keeps the Internet healthier through programs that support tech education for girls, create trust around factual news, bring civility to the comments section and more.

Library

Enjoy everything you’ve saved to Firefox while browsing in one, easy place.

Extensions

Personalize Firefox with your favorite extras that help you do you.

Mobile Browsing

Access your bookmarks, open tabs and passwords across all your devices.

What's New:

Project Quantum, our effort to create a next-generation engine. Firefox 57 includes many aspects of this project, so we’re calling this release Firefox Quantum.

Firefox Quantum is roughly 2X faster than Firefox 49 on the Speedometer 2.0 benchmark, thanks to its new CSS engine, its “just right” multi-process architecture, the way it prioritizes your active tab, and much more. Firefox Quantum also includes a visual refresh – Photon – that looks and feels right at home with modern operating systems. To learn more about Firefox Quantum, visit the Mozilla Blog.
