Been using for a few months since developer firefox implemented it earlier, I'll be honest there's no real perceivable difference if just browse facebook, YouTube, kopitiam.

Most improvements I noticed was that there's a push to get firefox closer to web standard.

That said my computers aren't low end machines, maybe that's why there no difference on my end.

A Mozilla engineer has revealed one of the hidden techniques that Firefox 57 -- known as Quantum -- is using to improve page load times.

Mozilla has already flagged a number of architecture changes to Firefox Quantum that delivered speed and performance improvements, but Firefox 57 has another secret trick to achieve faster page loads: it delays scripts from tracking domains, such as www.google-analytics.com

The technique was developed by Mozilla engineer Honza Bambas, who calls it "tailing". It works by delaying scripts from tracking domains when a page is actively loading and rendering.

The feature isn't intended as a privacy enhancement, although it does rely on data from Firefox's privacy feature Tracking Protection.

Tailing only briefly prevents the tracking scripts loading, rather than disabling them entirely. Page load performance is improved by saving on network bandwidth and computing resources while loading a page, in a way that prioritizes site requests over tracking requests.

"Requests are kept on hold only while there are site sub-resources still loading and only up to about 6 seconds. The delay is engaged only for scripts added dynamically or as async. Tracking images are always delayed. This is legal according all HTML specifications and it's assumed that well built sites will not be affected regarding functionality," explains Bambas.
