A new Firefox browser was introduced on iPhone and iPad last year. Known for its privacy-focused features, the Firefox Focus browser is now available on Android. This browser keeps things simple with only the address bar on the homepage, and also there are no tabs. Meant for a more focused (no pun intended) browsing experience, it also has a built-in ad blocking.
Browsing in Peace – the Firefox Focus Browser is now Available on Android
The browser, as mentioned before, has an ad blocker which is turned on by default. Additionally, it also prevents web trackers from serving ads from all over the internet. A tracker counter that shows how many trackers are blocked per site is a feature in the Android version of the browser.
Moreover, the browser loads in “stealth mode” automatically. This means screenshots are disabled as well as grayed out websites on the recent apps list. Firefox will also notify you if the app is still running in the background.
Firefox says that automatically blocking ads allows the browser to deliver pages faster without consuming too much data. The Firefox Focus is certainly different from the browsers we are used to and is definitely worth a try.It is now available for free on Play Store.
