    I use Firefox in Linux, just seems to work better than anything else in that OS but still stubbornly using IE in Win 10.

    I shall try Quantum in the esteemed organ known as Mint.

    I don't know if it's just the placebo effect, but FF Quantum does appear to be a bit than Chrome for me... I didn't think that would be the case for light loading sites, I thought it would only have a noticeable difference for bloated webpages. I'd be interesting to see "real world" browser benchmarks once it's been out for a couple of weeks.

    I remember @Quadophile saying how fast this was in beta a couple of months ago :thumb:.

    I tied the Beta when Quad posted about it but it kept freezing. Started using Opera after that.
