"Runs Infinite Loops Faster" was the old joke among Computer Scientists whenever a newer faster computer system came out. It applies very well to Firefox Version 57.0. Previous versions, both 32-bit and 64-bit, would only use one Core of a multiple Core processor. Version 57.0 uses all available Cores/Processors. At least, I assume so based on my dual core experience.
The Edmonton Journal web site and, I assume, all other Postmedia newspaper web sites, have long pegged the CPU usage meter for me, but only one Core's worth. Until Version 57.0. Now my machine does not freeze, but goes into "dinosaur mode" where actions, even mouse actions, often take 30 seconds to happen.
