This November could be the biggest moment for Firefox users around the globe. First, Mozilla has officially released the newest version of Firefox codenamed Quantum. Firefox Quantum is the best version of Firefox I’ve been using. Firefox has been updated a couple times since its debut in 2002. However, what Mozilla did with Firefox Quantum is really brilliant. The change is almost 90%, better. From the look to performance. Many parties love this new face of Firefox.
Second, Firefox users are now able to use Momentum, a productivity extension which previously only available for Google Chrome. There have been no official announcement by Momentum staff, but the extension is already available on the add-ons store for Firefox.
Momentum is a really cool productivity tool. This extension will bring a randomized background every time you open a new tab on Firefox. The background will be changed daily, bringing a new feeling to you everyday. Not just background, Momentum will also deliver new randomized quotes every day to get you inspired. So as not to be curious, below is the glance look of Momentum.
What you see above is Momentum on Firefox Quantum running on Ubuntu 16.04. As you can see, there are several items on the page of Momentum from clock, weather (top-right corner), to-do list and so on. Momentum is fully customized. You can set which items you want Momentum to display. You can even use your own photos an quotes if you wish it. It’s just, you need to upgrade your account before being able to do this (Momentum is a freemium extension). To customize the look of Momentum, you can go to the settings menu by clicking the gear icon at the bottom-left of your screen. In this article we will be focusing covering on how to take advantage of Momentum to enhance your productivity.

In order to get everything get done the way it should be, you also need to create a priority scale. You can then write down today’s most priority task on the focus field on Momentum.
