Mozilla & Gecko clones

Firefox Quantum continues to make news as Mozilla incorporates even more innovative technology into the platform. The development team behind the WebExtensions architecture is no exception, landing a slew of new API and improvements that can now be found in Firefox 59 (just released to the Beta channel).

haven't they already had to add fuzziness to timing just to avoid direct browser->cpu snooping?....

Which, as I remember, had nothing to do with Firefox itself, and was all about mitigating vulnerabilities in the CPU. All OSes had to be upgraded as well, so I don't really see how it is relevant here.

You might be right that modern browsers have become too complex; but what can you do, when you go from a simple document reader to basically an OS for all those Web frameworks...
