The company Mozilla has released the first public beta of Firefox for computers based on chips Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and operating system Windows 10. We are talking about laptops, so now the list of programs for such devices has widened a bit.
As expected, the browser will move from beta testing to release in the next two months, i.e. in early summer, users will be able to use it.
Note that these laptops are characterized by low power consumption that is a consequence of the CPU on the ARM architecture. As stated by Chuck Harmston (Chuck Harmston), senior product Manager for the Mozilla project, Firefox ARM, the main task of the developers is to minimize the energy consumption of the browser in all aspects. No comparative figures the company does not, because it is difficult to assess whether the ARM-version of the browser is superior to Assembly for x86 and x86-64.
Is not specified, how does Firefox for ARM, but it is possible that there is native code and not x86 emulation, which should dramatically improve its performance.
