It has been almost a year since Mozilla launched its ultra-private mobile browser, i.e. Firefox Focus. Since then, the application has been managed to earn an elephantine user base and fetched over 1Mn downloads on the Google Play Store. Today, the company has released a new Firefox Focus update to take your web browsing experience to the next level.
Firefox Focus’s new version provides a quicker access to your most-visited websites. You can also add any search engine to your Focus browser. The biggest change is found in the Firefox Focus update is its autocomplete feature that lets you add the most-visited sites to your personal list.
However, you can only see the sites’ URL in this list. So, when you want to check your favorite sports team’s scores, merely type a couple of letters on the address bar and autocomplete will complete the rest of the URL. The company claims that your data is never collected or shared. The autocomplete feature works in the same manner as that of URL predictions in Google Chrome’s address bar.
The new Mozilla Firefox Focus update enables you to add search engines from any site that has a search field. However, it also includes a list of suggested search engines to choose from.
One of the reasons why users love Focus is because of its faster load times. The web browser blocks ads and trackers by default. Mozilla’s objective with Firefox Focus was to consolidate improved privacy protection together with a minimalistic interface. Though the browser doesn’t have an extensive list of full-fledged Firefox’s features, it has a built-in ad blocker, simple search engine, as well as one-button tool to delete activity logs.
The team at Mozilla has been careful not to compromise on its vision and thus, provides you with the best features. The Firefox Focus update has also come with support for better downloads, notifications, and full-screen videos.
