Mozilla has released a new version of its Firefox browser for Desktop and Android. Do keep in mind we’ll focus on the update for Android, of course. Now, we can say that this is a security update through and through, as its main purpose is to patch up some recent vulnerabilities that were discovered by Google. The Mountain View giant discovered ‘Meltdown’ and ‘Spectre’ vulnerabilities, each of which can be rather malicious. This update landed as version 57.0.4 to Android, and also to desktops, in case you were wondering.
Having said that, some of you probably remember that Mozilla started pushing out a rather significant update for its Firefox browser back in November last year, the company launched the update under the name ‘Firefox Quantum’. This update’s purpose was to considerably increase Firefox’s speed, mainly when it comes to loading pages, and it was a very welcome update. In addition to speed enhancements, the company also changed up the design of the Firefox Browser’s UI. All in all, the company is doing its best to compete with Chrome, and such fast reactions to security breaches are definitely welcomed. It remains to be seen if Mozilla plans to release any additional ‘Meltdown’ / ‘Spectre’-related security updates in the coming days / weeks, stay tuned.
