What is the difference between Firefox and Firefox Quantum?

Hi, I use Firefox, and I know there is this browser called Firefox Quantum. Is it the same like the original Firefox? Or is it a new browser from Mozilla?

@davem Yes, Firefox Quantum (aka Firefox 57+) — is it a new browser by Mozilla. It differs in both appearance and funtionality. For example, FFQ does not support full themes, RSS/Atom feeds, podcast and vodcast feeds, JAR archives, XUL/XMPP extensions. But it support all push notifications, hardware media keys (play, pause, stop, fast forward/rewind), extended security settings, more processes.

Firefox users who open the About page of the web browser right now will notice that Firefox Quantum is still used as the name of the browser. Starting with Firefox 70, another name is displayed when users open the About page. The new name is Firefox Browser. Firefox users may notice that the logo changed as well.
