Firefox is one of the most popular web browsers in the world. Although in its day it was the king, with the arrival of Google Chrome a powerful rival appeared that gradually took its place. The Mozilla guys want to regain the throne, and that’s why they are constantly updating it with new features and optimizing its performance .

Despite being available for computers with macOS, its performance on computers with the Apple operating system is not as good as you would expect. One of its biggest problems is the excessive power consumption in laptops in the apple, but fortunately it seems to be solved with a next update.

In the latest versions of Firefox Quantum – which is how Mozilla has decided to name its web browser after implementing several changes to improve its performance, with a new design and more efficient resource management – page loading has been accelerated considerably, but users with an Apple notebook still saw the battery drain faster compared to Safari.

However, Henrik Skupin, one of Mozilla’s engineers, has announced through his Twitter profile that the team after the development of the browser seems to have managed to solve this problem .

Users who are using the test version of Firefox (the Nightly) will see that the consumption has been reduced by three times, which will allow the battery to last longer when using this browser. To this end, Skupin says they use CoreAnimation for rendering. This change will reach the stable version at the end of October with the release of Firefox 70.
