Firefox's Quantum web browser is good but still it needs a boost !

   We all know that Alternative to IE , Firefox was doing better until Google chrome comes out. Once Google chrome web browser was out , the results were fast and also takes your back memory well. Firefox web browser is an open-source web browser developed by Mozilla foundation and it is a non-profit organization that aims in developing innovative and also user-friendly projects till date.

     I was a fan of Mozilla Firefox once till Google chrome was launched, but for past few months or a year approximately,  Firefox was making lots of distributions and changes and users are getting more and more attracted to it. Recently , Firefox launched the beta version of Quantum version to public to download. What difference does it make ? Quantum is a fast performing and quick browser aimed to target users first instead of testers . Okay, Let's see what this Quantum web browser has to say of

Firefox Quantum browser is abstracted from multi process technology ( means the browser runs in two seperate nodes : One for UI , another for web content ) that makes browser to react quickly than freezing pages for while and also it can run two lanes seperately well is an interesting point

Because of that multiprocess technology adaption it hangs less and also responsive time is quick

Recent Quantum version is more quicker , convenient and also light weighted and it is 2 x faster than the predecessor  

Firefox Quantum is here in Beta and Developer Edition for all you early adopters. 

It also uses 30% less memory than Chrome  and balances memory well while browsing is a new vantage point and also the UI is very simple , elegant and also easily customizable by opening the start page with most used tabs or recently opened tabs or no tabs like the one below 

 As you can see in the right hand side of the browser , you could see what all sites or highlights we want , we can place it or take it off by clicking the check box as per user's convenience in just few clicks.

And also it has library function available,there you can store the last seen and saved bookmarks , histories , information , pocket list ( it has enabled packet list at the top of web browser in address bar - where it works exactly like book mark function ) and so on.

You can see adding to the packet list is very easy , at the top of  address bar , you could see down pointing arrow triangle like icon is located , if you click that , it will just add to your pocket list and that pocket list will be stored in cloud or indexed like clip and you can open and click the packet list anytime you want ... rather than going for searching in bookmarking , this tool is simple and cool

 It also has screenshot clipping facility available .. where you can printscreen by just clicking take screenshot of the page u view in just few clicks [ either half page , particular selection or full page ] and that stored screenshot will be saved in for 14 days ... which is good 

The rest of features remains the same with customization like you can re arrange tools in customization and you can see address bar is big , when you click show address bar. it will comes with matching typr word or last recently used keyword search 

Like in Google chrome , it could be synced perfectly and overall , my opinion of this web browser after few times of usage today is its good , captivating my interest here than google now , not got crashed with multiple tabs and process i been using for testing purpose and features are easy to use and applicable and also tracking protection technology( to trace the infiltrators and also protect the privacy of individual like incognito mode in Chrome )  works well but still some functions in Google chrome is quiet better than firefox quantum, but quiet a promising one

Image result for quantum vs chrome 

I have tested and benchmarked certain results from html5 test and here is the score of new firefox quantum browser for your reference . The higher the better. In this case Opera and Google Chrome has some edge over this , but this performance result is good

After my reviews , if you guys wanna try the download then , please visit Quantum to check the browser and min requirements .. If you want to download for your desktop , then please click this link and also please check out other browser editions for devlopers , nightly as well ). Also available for android by visiting Google Playstore and for  Ios users , please visit this link Please watch out the video for better reference

Do more with duckduckgo search engine : really amazing

When we think of search engine , the first name that comes to our mind is Google . For more than past two decades , Google was doing better indexing and everyone uses google for every search, Whether we are looking for any items to purchase , whether to open an email account or to find the information of any product or school or colleges or to search for jobs and for to post ads and also to book the tickets for reservation. Google is been search giant to everyone making ours a regular user for every daily needs via. online, but security and privacy on the search results has been a concern pin to every person in google. Whatever we search on net , will be notified by google and they will post ads and mark our genetic data , which sometimes we feel our privacy and security seems to have a hole 

But the search engine which has been launched in 2008 and still going on silent with the hiding of our privacy and does some features better than Google and other search indexes. The search engine that protects the user's security and privacy and avoiding the filter bubble of search results which used to be bubbled out by google . It returns the good results which generates the indexes from other search engines in easier way and also the feature of duckduckgo is very simplistic . The main difference between Google & dukduckgo is Google uses the results based on the sites you frequently visited but duckduckgo doesn't store those information and it is mostly concerned on user's individuality . Okay, Let's see what duckduckgo can do better than Google .

  Searching results in duckduckgo is as simple as google , but with no ads.

You can also search for any social profile using as like that in social networking sites. for example : if you want to search a name in twitter , you can just use  "  @username " or if you want to use Google plus or Fb, Just type " facebook username " . Here i'd like to fnd out RDJr. from fb , so i made my search as " facebook Robert Downey  Junior".  Indexing search result is very accurate and precise and you can check the result below:

Searching FB page using user name 

Performing twitter search in duckduckgo followed by username

You can easily found out the shortened links and also you could able to expand the links in this search engine so quickly. To expand any shortened link from url , Just type in the search engine of duckduckgo like " expand "  and hit enter, it will show the original url and likewise , if you want to shorten the original url to any shortened url , you could do it easily in the search box by typing " shorten " and hit enter , the result will be like the one below 

Expanding URL

Shortening url

You can also randomly generate character length password by using duckduckgo without any additional software by just typing inside the search box like this :  " password numeric character " . like this password 8 . these passwords are generated using random pass phrase.

Random passphrase generated based on character length you assign in search box
The next most interesting feature that duckduckgo has is !bangs. !bangs are nothing but the commands that you can perform during searches which helps users to narrow search results very precisely than widing over. using ibangs commands is very easy. For instance , if you want to search some product in flipkart say , watches from flipkart " google just fetches the indexing page , whereas duckduckgo goes to that page directly . You can just type " !flipkart watches for men " and hit enter. The page will be looking like this

You can also pick from categories or you can use the !bangs directly , if you are aware or choose from bangs available like the below by typing in the search bar of the browser like and you can select categorically 

You can choose from any Categories
Under Particular Categories - there are many sub categories - from there we can pick any one like the above .

You can also do google-like search stuffs in duckduckgo by asking for calendar, calculator , loan calculator

You can perform loan calculation in easy steps by just typing the prinicple amount followed by rate of interest with duration in simple or compound way like the one below " Loan Rs.100000 at 5% with 25% down for 10 years " .

You can also do the google like operations here by typing " timer " and " stop watch " operations in search box of duckduck go page like the one below

Duckduckgo has another interesting features like google and that is instant answers ( as the name suggests , it gives you the answer instantly by making wide crawling. this instant result helps you to find out the results based on what you offered as question and indexes the results in seconds. Here, I have used " what rhymes with duck " and the result is all the similar words related to duck will be indexed under result

You can also find out for emoticons in duckduckgo easily. Everyone is mostly aware of smileys and what is been used for . Emoticon [ a representation of a facial expression such as a smile or frown, formed by various combinations of keyboard characters and used in electronic communications to convey the writer's feelings or intended tone]  . I'm quiet surprised to see emoticons in duckduckgo. How means ? you just type the emoticon and the duckduckgo will index and brief you what that emoticon is for ? Not believing me. Let's find out in the search result below : I just typed the emoticon , the result of that is displayed in the top right corner with the info.

You can also check the status of the website response is down or up by typing this in the search box " is websitename down " like the one below: If the response is UP [ active ] , else the response is down [ offline or problem ]

You can also find out how to make recipes and also products and tours in the search engine associated with it by finding more goodies  there. Overall, duckduckgo has its own vantage and also disadvantages in fetching out some results. However , its more sleaky and easy to use search engine for any users to tap by
