Mozilla introduces Firefox Focus private browser for iOS

Friday 18 November 2016 | 10:56 CET | News
Mozilla has announced the launch of privacy-focused mobile web browser for iOS users called Firefox Focus. The "super simple, super fast" app is designed to block ad trackers by default and allows users to instantly erase browsing sessions with a single tap. Mozilla added that that blocking trackers is likely to improve performance on sites that track user behaviour. Firefox Focus was previously available on the App Store as a content blocker for iPhone's Safari browser but has now also been launched as a standalone private browser.
