To celebrate the launch of the new Firefox on Nov. 14, Mozilla is going to give New Yorkers a faster and more fun commute for a few days. Firefox will be taking over a fast ferry in NYC to shuttle riders between Pier 15 in lower Manhattan and Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Join us at our Firefox Tech Talk to hear Selena Deckelmann, Director of Engineering for Firefox Runtime, share the story of the road to Firefox Quantum. In this hour, Selena will present exciting developments in 57 including a brief overview of her team's work on integrating Tor patches into Firefox. Through a collaboration with Tor Project engineers and a team of Mozilla engineers spread around the globe, 100+ patches were integrated into Firefox, and the team is working on many more. These patches are privacy-enhancing on multiple fronts, using features only available in Firefox. Grab a bite and learn what makes Firefox fast and secure.
