SunSpider Success Highlighted by Firefox Nightly Developer Blog
Different Outcomes: SunSpider Triumph vs. JetStream Defeat
The test was made on the AreWeFastYet.com platform. The Mozilla development team didn’t mention that the results of the newer and more demanding JetStream 2.0 test, in which the Google Chrome browser is significantly faster than Firefox, are reported on the same platform.
Ongoing Enhancements and Innovations for Firefox
The developers of the independent browser also reported that over the past month they have been working on improving the speed of loading over the HTTP / 2 protocol and proposed a number of other innovations for the preview version of the product.
NIX Solutions reminds that earlier it became known that the desktop version of the browser lost support for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, as well as older versions of macOS; meanwhile, Firefox for Android will soon have full support for third-party extensions.
