It wasn’t too long ago that we witnessed the birth of the Firefox Quantum browser. This was accompanied by many changes but one which really stood out was the snappiness of the web browser. Till date, it’s one of the fastest browsers with a pretty neat interface. However, Firefox believes that this browser is about to get a lot faster with the release of its latest version, version 58. So, how do they expect to achieve this?
The firm will be doing this by injecting a new two-tiered compiler into the web browser. This includes a compiling code with a baseline compiler which promises around 10-15 times faster speeds. Lin Clark from Mozilla best explains how the new feature would work:
This is supposed to speed up the browser increasing overall user experience. Firefox 58 is scheduled for a release on the 23rd of January. If you’re impatient, you could always give the new two-tiered compiler on the beta or nightly build.
