Firefox Focus web browser gets search suggestions and updated design
There are also under-the-hood changes to increase performance.
The Google Play Store is home to a lot of excellent web browsers, but if privacy is your main concern, Firefox Focus is one of the best options there is. To make the app even better, developer Mozilla is rolling out a heap of goodies in the latest update.
First thing’s first, you’ll find a revamped user interface that’s been optimized for Android 9 Pie. The highlights here include new icons within the browser, a customizable URL bar, and a vastly simplified layout for the settings.
On the functional side of things, this latest update also includes:
- Search suggestions to help you find your favorite websites more easily.
- Tips on the home page on how to get the most out of Focus.
- A brand-new GeckoView engine that promises “a faster and more secure browsing experience.”
Mozilla says the update is available in the Play Store now, so be sure to grab it if you don’t already have it.
