Firefox users who are enlisted in the browser’s beta program should be happy to know that a major update is coming their way. The update brings the browser’s build number up to 57.0 beta and it contains many cool features alongside a bunch of other visual changes.
Firefox for Android beta 57.0 APK
The update is scheduled to be rolled out in the following days, but this doesn’t mean that Firefox users need to wait for it to come OTA (over the air). The reason we are saying this is because the developer team at Firefox already published the APK version of the update.
Android Package Kit
Considering that APK is an acronym for Android Package Kit, no one should be surprised to find out that its exclusive to Android powered smartphones. Nonetheless, the update is available for free and the only thing that interested readers need to do is to enlist in Firefox’s beta program.
In addition, the only thing that Firefox asks from beta users in exchange for receiving the latest updates ahead of everyone else is to provide the developers with solid feedback which helps them improve the app’s overall performance.
The first thing that Firefox users are going to notice right after downloading the latest update is that Firefox has been visually refreshed. What we mean by this is that Firefox is now equipped with an all-new home page that features cool options such as quick access to favorite websites and recent history.
Even though the visual refresh is nice and all, the best thing about this new update is the fact that it improves Firefox’s loading speed. The developers behind Firefox made sure to optimize the browser’s engine so that it runs at similar speed as the faster and more modern Firefox Quantum Edition does.
