Mozilla believes that users lack meaningful control over their digital lives and there is no dedicated browser that allows them to search privately with ease. This is why the company has now launched its Internet browser Firefox Focus, which allows users to make those sensitive searches easily that might cause them discomfort if tracked otherwise.
The most crucial feature that Firefox Focus offers is that the browser is, by default, set on a private browsing mode and blocks many of the trackers that follow you around the Web, as per the company. Users are not required to change privacy or cookie settings. In case of websites that are dependent on tracking, if you don’t mind being tracked, the browser allows you to easily open the Web address in browsers like Firefox or Safari.
Further, Firefox Focus allows users to erase their entire browsing session with just a single tap and saves you from the trouble of going through several menus. You can download the browser from App Store.
Mozilla says that the technology used for tracking users is one of the primary reasons why mobile webpages are slow to load. This is why” it is likely you’ll notice a performance boost on the many sites that track your behaviour,” Mozilla said in its official blog post.
There are sensitive situations where the users might find the browser extremely useful, this includes searches for engagement rings, flights to Las Vegas or expensive cigars, as pointed out by Mozilla.
“Firefox Focus continues to operate as a Safari content blocker on iOS, and users will be able to take advantage of Tracking Protection on both Safari and Firefox Focus,” it added.
