    Firefox Focus: The privacy browser's review

    Published: 2017-06-22, by .

    Firefox Focus turns off web tracking while you browse so you don’t have to

    • Sleek UI
    • Familiar, accessible, and intuitive controls
    • Can't add or manage bokmarks
    • Somewhat slow

    "Safe browsing"


    Designed to keep you in absolutely control of what you do when you browse, Firefox Focus brings private browsing-only mode to your mobile device. Available for Android and iOS, you’ll find a standard web browsing experience here with a few added touches to keep your privacy safe: Firefox Focus has turned off access to web trackers and snoopers. You also won’t get any kind of ads at all on most websites that you browse to, like The Verge, Polygon, and AppsZoom. Once you’re done, Firefox Focus automatically removes your browsing history.


    Absolutely designed with mobile in mind, you’ll find not only a sleek interface, but also a very intuitive browser that keeps you safe while navigating on the web on your mobile and may possibly replace your stock browsing app.


    Privacy and protection comes at a steep cost, as you’ll find plenty of normal browser features removed, such as the option to add or manage your bookmarks. It could also run so much faster than it actually does.

    Firefox Focus: The Privacy Browser is FAST... REALLY FAST! Admittedly, I use this as a secondary browser to the "regular" Firefox browser - but because Firefox Focus: The Privacy Browser works so well, I find myself using it more and more. If you don't rely on synchronized bookmarks (the primary reason I personally continue to use the "regular" version of Firefox), then THIS is the browser you want installed on your mobile device... But if you rely on synchronized bookmarks (and other data), then you'll probably want to wait until they update "regular" Firefox with this sort of performance.

    I wish the font size can be adjusted. It's just a bit too tiny.

    I like this much more now that I've used it to go to a couple websites without having to log in and still be able to see everything. Still wish it had at least some bookmarks, but it does give a few choices of sites you've gone to.
