Mozilla is rolling out a new version of its Firefox Internet browser for Android which is said to be the biggest update for the browser to date. Several of the new features that are coming with the update were adopted from the desktop version of the Internet browser.
Among the new features include the addition of dark mode which should be great news for those who have been waiting for it to arrive on the browser. Additionally, the URL bar has also been given a position shift at the bottom of the display. However, users who do not favour the new placement of the URL bar can still have the option to shift it back to its original position.
Apart from this, other new features will be the Enhanced Tracking Protection to ensure that your browsing data is not manipulated by internet trackers. Along with this comes the newly introduced feature known as Collections of which will help you to save and organise certain websites if you wish to visit them at a later time.
Similarly, Firefox will now be able to support third-party add-ons which will allow users to add in more extensions to their app browser moving forward. There will only be 10 add-ons currently available but Mozilla has said that they will be adding more soon. In addition, Mozilla claims that Firefox for Android now performs at a faster speed thanks to the implementation of the company’s own GeckoView mobile browser engine.
With more features being added to the Firefox for Android, users who are currently using other Internet browsers might want to take note of the major changes that have been implemented by Mozilla.
