Firefox Quantum

Firefox just got faster. Two times faster. This past week, Firefox updated to Firefox Quantum (Version 57.0.) There are two versions – one for regular browsers and one for developers. It is built on a new engine for better and faster page loading. It also will use less memory than previously, and they say it is 30% lighter than Chrome.

It has built in privacy modes. You can block even hidden trackers by turning on tracking protection. When you block the ads and scripts that are bogging you down, the page loads even faster.

If there’s a page you want to see later, you can save it to Pocket to view later. There is a library where it will place these articles as well as your bookmarks. You can search with other search engines with just a click. You can also customize it with themes or placement of icons for your tools and addons. You can take screenshots without adding an extension – it’s built right in.

Do you know how to “Hukk It”?

The Victor crew came across a website that could prove to be very useful: Hukkster.com. You can keep track of items you would like to purchase from anywhere. You can even have it track when the item goes on sale! It will also show you coupon codes.

Sign up for your free account, and add the “Hukk It” button to your browser. When you are shopping on one of the hundreds of shops that work with Hukkster, you can Hukk It and purchase later. You tell it what color and size if it’s a garment. You can also use it to comparison shop. You will be notified by text, email or push notification (in the app).

Happy Shopping!
