Firefox 57 has been released! Included in this release is a new UI and Quantum CSS. This is the first part of a major rewrite of many of the browser’s components using the programming language Rust. The overall effort is called Project Quantum, and the goal is to make the web browser do more work in parallel, making better use of modern multi-core processors. I have to say the results so far are pretty significant. The browser is a whole lot faster then it used to be.
If you already have Firefox installed, it should automatically update soon. If you do not already have it, you can download the new Firefox here.
Nightdive Studios is starting to do video updates for Kickstarter Backers about the System Shock Reboot. I have lost a LOT of interest in this once they abandoned the initial art style. At least what they have looks decent enough. Plus, we also have System Shock 3 to look forward to.
The Planetside 2 update we have all been waiting for is finally here. Huge changes to alerts as well as sweeping vehicle and weapon balance changes. It is certainly going to take a while to make adjustments to all of the changes, but it seems like the game is moving in a net positive direction. Full release notes below:
