I used it in beta on notebook PC, it's still slow though there are some tool and new features such as Web developer, Firefox health report and some extension or add-ons more complicated but Indeed quite useful and also display updates, The Firefox Quantum still weighs its app size by consuming 126 MB, I don't know because I used Win 32 bytes, maybe it does not happen on Win 64 bytes, on Android because I am Indonesian, I use Firefox Rocket and it is very simple, it does not have many tools, only there is turbo mode and clear browsing data, but I hope also add-ons feature, I admit Firefox is indeed also has the best browser such as also Google.

Firefox has a lot of important addons with worse or non-existent alternatives on Chrome. For example the addons that I have mentioned in my previous comment (Findbar Tweak is better than Chrome's own feature). Even the Ublock is better in Firefox, because it supports script tag blocking, while Chrome doesn't support it.
Firefox for Android is the only one browser for mobile that can be configured to always open all pages in desktop mode (other browsers can only change user agent, while Firefox can change the viewport with this about:config setting: layout.css.devPixelsPerPx ). You can use USI addon and an user script that changes floating elements to static. And you can use Adobe Flash too. This is the only one browser that allows disabling HTML5 content ( media.webm.enabled ).
Highly disappointed so far. Extensions are broken including No-Script.I will give it a couple of days and check if it is still available if not i'm going back. I hate how pages look without no-script. Full of advertisements and useless crap

Happens very rarely under Chrome and it never forces me to restart the whole browser - just killing tab's process.
I can also name a few extentions with worse or non-existent alternatives on firefox.
Split-screen/tile-window functionality is better under Chrome-based. I also have an extension for changing audio devices for selected tab - no alternative under Firefox.
And that was before the web extension switch.

Firefox 52 ESR is an exception. It's the perfect Firefox version and browser. And it remains that forever.

I was stubborn with Firefox exactly because i thought it's more customizable. Well when i spent more time trying to find alternative extensions for Chrome-based browsers i actually managed to make it even more convenient than Firefox. And that was before Firefox switched to web extentions. Now it has much poorer customizability.
The only thing lacking is Chrome is interface customization. But aside from the bookmark bar, there's not much to customize anyway. Interface is already compact enough and doesn't waste space, also you can have all the extension buttons of course.
I don't see how Firefox is worthy anymore. The only people who insisted on using it were the ones who wanted maximum flexibility and it's now gone with the web extensions.
Sean, 15 Nov 2017LOL! XD 1200 websites. Who knows that much websites?Maybe he opend 1200 tabs of a single website
It's really fast...
than older version even in slow connection
This is true. I tried it with two laptops and is indeed faster especially with sites plenty of images. I am die hard Chrome user which I started using the since it became available

And chrome was never more customizable then firefox. Never!!! Firefox has millions of extensions, only that is already above chrome. Plus the neutral customization ways. Firefox is for people.

I was a beta tester fir a couple of Months. This released version seems even faster. I will neve let fo to this guys. They need to stay up, chrome i never used and will never use. Google in general is something to avoid at all costs in general. In the mean time duckduckgo.com has become really good. Firefox with duckduckgo. Script and ads blocker and i have a decent browsing experience:).
Using it right now and I can attest to the fact that the internet is a bit faster.
