"Firefox is today releasing Firefox 67 to introduce a bunch of new
performance improvements. The company is changing how Firefox works and
renders web pages to help speed things up. And according to the company,
the latest release of Firefox is faster than ever before."
What we now have are faster client applications (e.g., Firefox), faster
modems and routers, and faster broadband speeds but servers that cannot
deliver Internet packets fast enough to provide any appreciable overall
improvement in speed.
Oh, they can. But on the one hand, the providers aren't providing the
fiber optic (fiber optic) required; and on the other hand, they have
permission to throttle speeds. Why innovate and improve if you don't
have to? That just wastes shareholders' dollars.
