They conducted six tests to determine which is better and faster. Apparently, in all six tests, with the last one as live and a real-time test of both browsers, they concluded that Google Chrome is still the best in web browsing, with still faster speeds.

According to the site:

“Unfortunately for Mozilla, Chrome looks like it’s keeping the top spot, at least for now.”

“In reality, however, Quantum is no slug. It’s a capable, fast, and gorgeous browser with innovative bookmark functionality and a library full of creative add-ons. As Mozilla’s developers fine-tune Quantum in the coming months, it’s possible it could catch up to Chrome.”

Well, as said earlier, it really depends on the user and his or her preference. Here are some of the reactions people had after trying the new web browser.
