Mozilla launched its privacy-focused web browser called Firefox Focus in November last year. The browser was initially released for iPhone and iPad only. Mozilla designed it to be fast, simple, and private. Firefox Focus has been very well received on iOS and users have long been waiting for Mozilla to release it for Android. The company has finally confirmed the Mozilla Firefox Focus Android release today.

Much like its iOS counterpart, Firefox Focus for Android has no visual clutter. There are no tabs, you just erase your browsing session with a simple tap. The browser will send notifications when it’s running in the background to remind the user that they can easily tap to erase their browsing history.

It blocks tracking ads natively so that users can browse the web without being followed around by these ads that are known to slow down the browsing experience.

Users will see an ad tracker counter which tells them the number of ads that have been blocked per site. They can also disable the tracker blocker if it prevents a site from loading correctly.

Since it’s the Android version, users can also set Firefox focus up as the default browser for their device. Mozilla Firefox Focus is now available as a free download from the Google Play Store.
