Firefox will not run at all without the following libraries or packages. This doesnt make sense to me given that firefox is the browser utilizing asm. While the project runs very well in chrome and opera. First, we are going to look at the total amount of time it takes to get to the main screen for both webassembly and asm. Firefox now makes importing your bookmarks and history from the new microsoft edge browser on windows and mac simple. Addons installed by external applications can now be removed using the addons manager. Changed plain text files displayed within firefox will now wordwrap. Theres also been a massive surge in interest after mozilla and epic announced that they had ported unreal engine 3 to asm. It also runs natively on windows, mac os x, linux, ios, and android so you might want to think about using it regardless of your asm. At the moment, we have x86x64 support on desktop windowsmaclinux and support for mobile firefox on arm is almost done. Todays safari flops on apples new browser speed tests cnet.
