Mozilla creative director Tim Murray said the new logo should follow this route. In addition, the logo of Firefox Nightly is a kindBlue and purpleThe color scheme (above), the usual Firefox still uses a red, orange and yellow scheme (see below).
Mozilla claims that the new version will also remove the "Quantum" tag that has been attached to the Firefox name since the release of Firefox 57 in November 2017 (Firefox Quantum). Quantum marks a major effort to accelerate Firefox to better compete with Google's Chrome. Many quantum programs have rebuilt parts of the Firefox engine and are gradually expanding to more computer types. This project is also known as WebRender (WebRender is a GPU-based experimental Web content renderer developed in Rust).
Firefox Engineering Manager Jessie BoniSteel said:
Our goal is that WebRender will be the main rendering engine for the Firefox browser, and we will continue to roll it out to other platforms in the coming months.
Mozilla believes it can compete with Chrome in the "protect users' online privacy" feature, blocking websites and ads that try to track users, and Chrome lags behind other browsers (such as Safari, Firefox, Brave, etc.).
