Firefox is among one of the most-trusted browsers out there. Apparently, almost all Android-powered devices come with default browsers like Google Chrome or Opera while iOS devices remain faithful with their very own Safari, it is still great to find great alternatives like Firefox. Those who love using the same browser in their PC or Laptop will find their mobile app version equally fascinating. The mobile version captures all the elements we enjoyed from its PC counterpart.
Quick Search and Easy Access
Compared to leading browsers today, Firefox has a great reputation and is known for providing you with quick results. Much like in Google Chrome, it will prompt you to a simple yet user-friendly interface. Everything in this app is very easy to navigate. According to some tests conducted by various sources, this browser is proven faster than Google Chrome and way better than Opera and Safari in terms of overall performance. The interface is generally simple, neat yet surprisingly intuitive. You can easily navigate from one tab to another.
Firefox anticipates your needs and intuitively provides multiple suggested and previously-searched results across your favorite search engines. If you frequently visit a specific site, you can always create shortcuts for easy access. Search providers like Wikipedia, Amazon, and Twitter can be accessed in just a few taps. Users can also send video and Web content from your smartphone or tablet to any TV equipped with supported streaming capabilities.
Enhanced Tracking Protection and Privacy Control
If there is one thing that this browser is known about, it is safety. With so many search engines and browsers today, it is really hard to find one that provides you with safe and secure searches. Thousands of online trackers are following you every day, collecting information about where you go online and slowing down your speed. Interestingly, this mobile browser blocks over 2000 of these trackers by default and there are ad blocker add-ons available if you want to customize your browser even more.
It comes with the so-called Enhanced Tracking Protection that automatically blocks over 2000 online trackers from invading your privacy. This means that you do not have to dig into the privacy settings and configure them manually because this impressive level of security and privacy is already set up by default. As what the app claims, this mobile browser is brilliantly designed with smart browsing features that let you take your privacy, passwords, and bookmarks with you safely wherever you go.
Add-ons and Quick Share
Another great thing about this browser is the ability of the user to personalize the browser through add-ons. Take control of your mobile browser by personalizing the browser with add-ons like ad blockers, password and download managers and more. For more control, it gives you quite a bit of control over your cache, browsing history, cookies and downloaded files. It also allows you to clear private data completely with a single touch.
Interestingly, it also offers a Privacy Mode, which can be accessed by touching the mask icon in the lower-left corner of the interface. This is generally their answer to Google Chrome’s Incognito Mode.
Firefox has established a great reputation and is considered to be one of the best mobile browsers out there. It comes with many great features and most of all, it places the security and privacy among its topmost priorities. Firefox on Android devices has a plethora of extensions and add-ons to choose from while iOS devices are not yet open for such feature but we’re hoping that iOS users may soon embrace these benefits. Overall, the app for iOS and Android is a reliable, safe and fast browser that is worthy of consideration for mobile web browsing.
