In our previous article we mentioned that Mozilla will be releasing its new Firefox 58 web browser to all users in the next week Tuesday January 23rd. The release is expected to be made available for all platforms including Windows.

It now seems that the web browser is currently available to download from Mozilla’s official download servers. Windows users will be able to download the new release by clicking this link.

As we have reported earlier the new web browser will be launching with new add streaming compilation along with a baseline compiler which lets the web browser run faster. The browser will also be available with an inbuilt security fix for the recent Meltdown and Spectre attack.

Firefox, especially for Windows has made sure that the browser comes with optimization of the page load to cache JavaScript internal representation improving the speed for Windows users by using the Off Main Thread Painting functionality which allows 15 times faster downloading.

The latest Firefox 58 also comes with an fix for the web browser which had crashing issues on Windows and the company will be releasing the browser with fix for the crashing issue along with the security fix for Meltdown and Spectre attacks.

If you are not willing to download the update from the servers today then you can wait for the company to roll it out officially via an OTA (Over The Air) update on Tuesday 23rd Jan 2018.

    This is great. I’ve been enjoying Quantum since it launched. My main gripe is the bookmark manager, so I use Bookmark OS
