When it comes to mobile browsers, we think it’s safe to say that Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome are the two top contenders for the number one spot. These two browsers are competing against each other on a daily basis and they are considered as close equals. However, Mozilla released a new update which helps Firefox get the upper hand over Chrome.
Firefox for Android Beta 57.0 APK
We are talking about the update which brings Firefox for Android Beta’s version number up to 57.0. The update is available in APK form and it can be downloaded and manually installed right now. As the browser’s name implies, this update is available only for the Android ecosystem and not for iOS.
The first thing that Android fans are going to notice about their Mozilla Firefox browser after downloading and installing the APK update is that the browser’s visuals have been refreshed. As an example, shortcut icons and the home page have been completely redesigned.
New Home Page
The second visual change that this new update brings is a new home page. Mozilla Firefox for Android now features an all-new home page that’s been especially designed to make it easier for users to find new content and access their favorite websites. Therefore, the all-new home page is equipped with quick access to top sites and recent history.
Leaving visual changes aside, this new APK update contains a major feature. After installing the APK update, the mobile browser is now going to be powered by Mozilla’s new engine known as Firefox Quantum.
This engine is much more energy efficient than what Google Chrome is offering since it actually uses 30% less memory than Google’s browser. Moreover, the new browser engine also brings loading speeds to the next level since its able to better prioritize data usage.
