ad-blocking Brave Browser is also now paying users in cryptocurrencies for watching online advertisements. Still, when it comes to usage, Mozilla’s Firefox is right up there along with the Google Chrome browser.
Mozilla has now unveiled a next-generation mobile browser for Android users. The experimental web browser promises faster and privacy-focused browsing experience. The new Firefox preview is powered by two Mozilla projects including GeckoView and built-in component based on Chromium’s Blink engine.
Firefox already has a sizeable amount of audience for its desktop browser. However, it has been underrepresented in the mobile space with Google Chrome being the dominant mobile browser. Firefox Preview is another attempt by Mozilla to acquire new set of Android users. The company claims that Firefox preview is twice as fast as the previous Firefox for Mobile.
Fast browsing speed
Firefox Preview is much faster as compared to the current version. Mozilla’s Kraken benchmark tool confirms that this is speedier browser. The fast browsing speed gives Mozilla a competitive advantage over existing available mobile browsing solutions.
The collections feature is similar to using sub-folders to organise bookmarks. The feature is different in a way that it not only lets you save pages to separate collections but you can also save a page with in-progress processes like website shopping cart or specific search results. The browser will make suggestions for adding pages to your collections and share collections with others.
This is another cool feature in Firefox Preview. Plenty of apps are adding Dark Mode these days and this feature was missing from the Firefox browser. Not anymore! Through the dark mode feature, you can lock either light tor dark mode with Firefox Preview. The dynamic swap is also based on the theme in your phone’s display settings.
One thing that you will notice after installing Firefox Preview is the new and much improved UI. This version has a trimmed down and focused UI as compared to Firefox Mobile. It is easier to jump to a page and homepage is less-cluttered as compared to the existing version. The navigation bar has been moved to the bottom of the app screen and stays mostly out of the way.
