Mozilla Introduces Firefox 54 With Multiple Operations Support




Mozilla released Mozilla Firefox on Tuesday for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. The new version includes the next core of multi-process support that simplifies and reduces RAM consumption, improves responsiveness and increases browser speed.

The new version of Firefox 54 is now available for desktop users on, and all current users can upgrade their version automatically, and the new version of Android users will be available in the next few hours via Google Play Store.

Mozilla does not publish accurate figures for the Firefox browser, but the company notes that about half a billion people worldwide use the browser. In other words, the browser is a major platform targeted by web developers in a world dominated by increasingly portable applications.

Over the years, Mozilla has supported multiple operations within its Firefox browser as part of the Electrolysis project. The company has begun supporting multiple operations within the interface and extensions since early 2013, while Firefox Nightly has been supported by multiple operations since November 2014.

The company has supported multiple operations with the release of Firefox 48 for 1 percent of users, and the number slowly increased, and expanded the company from its support with the release of Firefox 49 to include a small initial set of plugins compatible, and announced the goal of delivering the support of multiple operations for all Firefox users Sometime in the first half of 2017.

Support is now available to all users with browser version 54 and Electrolysis, the biggest change to the Firefox code, and the browser currently uses up to four processes to run web page content across all open tabs.

This means that the complex Web pages on a single tab have far less impact on responsiveness and speed than other tabs, and the browser is now working better on the hardware of the computer, which means less RAM.

Mozilla today also published an update on its plans to build the next generation of the Quantum project, which takes full advantage of modern hardware hardware. The company aims to make Firefox the fastest and sleekest browser for computers and mobile devices.
