Given how much data is being collected on us these days, it’s safe to say that privacy is considered to be a pretty big deal to many. This is why ad blockers are increasingly popular, as well as other apps and extensions meant to curb the amount of data that is being collected on us.

This has also led to the rise of developers such as Mozilla creating privacy-focused mobile browsers like with Firefox Focus that was launched last year. Now the Android version of the app was only launched last month but it seems that it has proven to be quite a hit as Mozilla has since reported that about a month later, the app has managed to hit 1 million downloads on Android alone.

In addition to the announcement, Mozilla is also announcing three new user-requested features for the app. This includes support for full-screen videos, support for downloads, and also updated notification actions. This changes appear to be only available for the Android version of the app, so Android users can head on over to the Google Play Store to get their hands on it. We’re not sure if there are plans to eventually do the same for iOS users, but if you just want a privacy-focused browser then you can check it out via the iTunes App Store.
