Is Firefox for Android also upgraded to the new Quantum engine?

Posted

Since Firefox Quantum has launched, I just wanted to know. Is it only in the desktop versions or will there be an Android/iOS upgrade as well? Or is Quantum already in the mobile version or simply not compatible with mobile at the present time?

Firefox for Android has some of the basic improvements that are part of desktop Firefox 57. It does not have Stylo or multiprocess. Those features will be coming in future releases.

Firefox for iOS uses Apple's Safari/WebKit engine. It will not be possible for Firefox to bring Quantum features to iOS.
