Released today.

Mozilla is working on a major overhaul of its Firefox browser, and, with the general release of Firefox 57 today, has reached a major milestone. The version of the browser coming out today has a sleek new interface and, under the hood, major performance enhancements, with Mozilla claiming that it's as much as twice as fast as it was a year ago. Not only should it be faster to load and render pages, but its user interface should remain quick and responsive even under heavy load with hundreds of tabs.

Mine just auto-updated. Everything still works just fine. It doesn't seem any faster on this machine, but pages loaded faster than an eyeblink with the old version, anyway.

I'll be anxious to see if it helps my travel Nextbook, with its limited memory.

One thing is that Firefox no longer supports toolbars. So if you use something like RoboForm that used to display as a toolbar, you may need a workaround. The one for RoboForm is that the RF symbol now appears in the menu bar, and if you click it, a vertical dropdown list appears. Works just fine on my 'pooter, and it does take up less screen space.

Just checked my Firefox, it updated and is definitely faster.

My toolbars are still in place.

I don't dislike this version, for sure.

"When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace." -Jesus

"Also he [David] bade them teach the children of Judah [the use of] the bow" -Samuel

"An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it." -Col. Jeff Cooper

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin

Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain

Firefox 37 and Windows XP

How could they possibly improve that?

I'm going to miss the Download Status Bar add-on, but that's a fairly minor loss.

It's plugged in with Yahoo and Oath advertisements.It's not better for anyone then Bill Gates and other aggregators for revenue.

They used to be rebels under Netscape but they have become what they fought against. Time to dump them for privacy rights and find an upstart company yet on their payroll.

Click on the icon on the upper right corner with the vertical bars. Downloads are there. They killed my RSS aggregator, "Brief", so I've had to find another one, which doesn't work as well

I use a blocker and ghostery, so it matters not in the least.
