Mozilla took another hit in mobile surfing with a new version of Firefox on Android. We are playing recently with the newly released public access product for this new Firefox, which is now known as Firefox Preview, and we are here to fill you with everything you need to know about it – how fast it is, how much the best new features we've found are also safe.
Why is Mozilla creating a new Android app for Android?
Firefox has a significant niche carved out of the desktop browsers market, but it remains too poorly represented in the mobile space. Part of this is due to the lack of almost full use of Chrome on Android, but even Mozilla admits that Firefox mobile devices can be much better.
Instead of trying to dramatically change the course of the mobile app, Mozilla chose to start a new Firefox app at the top. This new Firefox is built on the GeckoView open source mobile browser software that Mozilla says Firefox Preview is twice as fast as the previous version of Firefox and has many of the same privacy protection features desktop version to mobile.
We spent some time with the new Firefox review to see if Mozilla's claims include water and let us know how very different this new Firefox really is.
The basic functionality of Firefox Preview is identical to any other mobile browser ̵
1; you can open and juggle between multiple tabs, have private mode, and you can make quick searches in the address bar of your favorite by your search engine (which can be set during setup and changed in the setup menu). Firefox veterans can log in and sync their bookmarks, browsing history, and other settings (depending on your sync settings, of course), but the differences between Firefox Mobile and Firefox Preview quickly become obvious.
