Mozilla Brings Firefox Focus to Android to Improve Privacy

Mozilla's private browser is now available for Android users.

Firefox Focus is a different browser than Firefox for Android or Desktop, in that its" core mission is to "focus' on providing user privacy, with tracking prevention and ad blocking by default.

Focus also gets rid of "visual clutter" by eliminating tabs and menus. Go for Firefox Focus. The most interesting feature of this app is it blocks most of the advertisements itself.

Focus launched on iOS past year, with Mozilla claiming "it's the highest rated browser from a trusted brand for the iPhone and iPad, earning a 4.6 average rating on the App Store". Firefox Focus become fame by its discrete way of blocking ads and giving the user a more secure online experience. Firefox Focus for Android automatically blocks a lot of trackers and send do not track requests as well.

Firefox Focus is a highly stripped-back version of the company's standard Firefox browser, offering no support for multi-tabbed browsing and very little in the way of productivity and multi-tasking features. The answer was a resounding yes: Firefox Focus is the highest rated browser from a trusted brand for iOS, earning a 4.6 average rating on Apple's App Store. Also notification banners will be up to clear the history, when the browser is running in the background.

Ad tracker counter - For the curious, there's a counter to list the number of ads that are blocked per site while using the app. Finally, you can now disable its ad tracker blocker if, for some reason, any websites you want to visit don't load correctly. Anyone can view that open-source blocklist over on GitHub.

Today, Mozilla made their privacy caretaker on Android. The next logical step is to bring in more users.
