Mozilla has announced the launch of Firefox Focus, a new browser dedicated to user privacy that blocks web trackers, including analytics, social, and advertising.
For the times when you don’t want to leave a record on your phone. You may be looking for information that in certain situations is sensitive – searches for engagement rings, flights to Las Vegas or expensive cigars, for example. And sometimes you just want a super simple, super fast Web experience – no tabs, no menus, no pop-ups. Firefox Focus gives you just that.
The browser is set on set on a private browsing mode by default, and it requires users not to change privacy or cookie settings. And in case, users want to access sites that are dependent on tracking, and they don’t mind being tracked, the browser allows them to open the Web address in other browsers.
Much of what makes mobile web pages slow is the technology used to track users on the web. Because Firefox Focus blocks these trackers, it is likely you’ll notice a performance boost on the many sites that track your behavior.
You can download Firefox Focus from the App Store.
