Mozilla launches Firefox Focus browser for Android

Tuesday 20 June 2017 | 16:38 CET | News
Mozilla announced the launch of its Firefox Focus web browser for Android devices. First released last year for iOS users, the app is designed to be "fast, simple and always private", the company said. Like the iPhone and iPad version, the Android app is free of tabs and other visual clutter, and allows users to erase a browsing session in one tap. It also comes with ad blocking to enhance privacy and speed up browsing. Otehr features include the ability to turn the ad blocker off, a notification reminder if the app is left running in the background.
