Firefox 54: more multi-process content processes by https://is.gd/7xLhyI

firefox-multiple-content-processes

Mozilla plans to increase the number of content processes of Firefox’s multi-process architecture to four (from one) with the release of Firefox 54.

Some Firefox installations are still not eligible for Firefox’s multi-process architecture. This includes systems with accessibility tools or settings enabled. Multiple processes won’t be enabled for users with extensions either, regardless of whether those are legacy add-ons, or WebExtensions.

Mozilla ran its memory test again to determine the right number of content processes. An increase in the number of content processes for the browser always goes along with an increase in memory usage.

That’s where two-factor authentication (2FA) comes into play. 2FA works by adding another authentication challenge to the equation. It’s not just about what you know – your password, it’s also about something you have. That’s where the authenticator apps from Microsoft and Google come into play.

Google’s I/O conference concluded last week, and if there’s one thing people will be talking about long after it’s over it’s Google Lens.

Google Lens is a technology that integrates Google’s search engine with a smartphone’s camera. By taking a photo with Google Lens your camera will be able to recognize objects and search for them on the web.

It goes deeper than that though, as CEO Sundar Pichai’s keynote went on some further examples were shown.
