Speed up your computer

Every computer program you run takes up some memory. When too much is used, your system can slooooowww down. Firefox aims for a balance — using enough memory to let you browse smoothly and leaving plenty of memory to keep your computer responsive.

Stop running out of memory

Chrome uses up to 1.77x more memory than Firefox. If your computer is already low on memory, this can cause a significant slowdown. Using Firefox’s latest version with multi-process can result in more available memory to run your favorite programs.

Browse faster, privately

Explore the web faster with Firefox Private Browsing. Only Firefox’s private mode includes tracking protection which blocks ads with trackers from loading on pages. Decluttering sites means web pages can load faster.
