    The only improvement I've noticed is that the new default layout is pretty good. I can use it out-of-box with only a few very minor tweaks (adding a separate search box and adding a bookmarks toolbar being the biggies), but otherwise it's just nothing to write home about. I certainly don't see any speed improvement, in fact it's more resource hungry on lower end hardware.

    Since I've had to switch my lower end hardware to either Chrome, Chromium, or Vivaldi why bother with Firefox at all now? I wish I could add a true search box to the toolbar in Chromium. If that were possible Chromium would become my new default browser. I'm really leaning towards Vivaldi because it's so easily customized but there are rare websites (like The CW) that refuse to stream on it.
    The responsiveness in my case is a great improvement. No lags and switching between the browser tabs was a breeze.

    My only complaint for this version is, the occasional yet enormous CPU spikes that came with these upgrades.

    Firefox developers are responding there.
