Install the latest Firefox Quantum 57.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 / Zorin OS

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y firefox

Version 57.0, first offered to Release channel users on November 14, 2017

Brace yourself for an all-new Firefox. It’s fast. Really fast. It’s over twice as fast as Firefox from 6 months ago, built on a completely overhauled core engine with brand new technology from our advanced research group, and graced with a clean, modern interface. Today is the first of several releases we’re calling Firefox Quantum, all designed to get to the things you love and the stuff you need faster than ever before. Experience the difference on desktops running Windows, macOS, and Linux; on Android, speed improvements are landing as well, and both Android and iOS have a new look and feel. To learn more about Firefox Quantum, visit the Mozilla Blog.

See the full Release Notes here.
57.0+build4-0ubuntu0.16.04.5 and higher.

Bitcoin Price to reach $10,000 by Christmas 2017

Bitcoin Price to reach $10,000 by Christmas 2017

By | Bitcoin | No Comments

With current market momentum there is no reason Bitcoin cannot reach or even surpass $10k by Christmas 2017.  The cancellation of Segwit2X caused BTC to have a range greater than $1000 in a single day period.

Bitcoin Price to reach $10,000 by Christmas 2017

Bitcoin has been moving at a pace rarely seen in the stock market.  Large ranges of $500 a day have not been uncommon in the last few months.  Today we learned $1000 ranges are not impossible either.  What are your thoughts on the momentum of Bitcoin?
