Looking ahead to FF 57

Looking ahead to FF 57 (expected to be released Nov. 14) :

1) Firefox 57 will feature a new core engine, called Quantum, that purports to make FF 57 run twice as fast as FF 52 (released about a year ago).

2) FF 57's Photon User Interface will offer a new look for the entire browser.

3) Firefox 57 will replace the old Add-ons API with the new WebExtensions API.  As a result,  legacy add-ons that have not been ported to Firefox's new add-ons technology will stop working  --- meaning that nearly 75% of all Firefox add-ons won't be available to users on the new version.
