Amazon Fire TV users will now be able to browse the internet with Firefox. Mozilla today confirmed that Firefox for Amazon Fire TV has been released. It joins Amazon’s own Silk browser on these devices to enable users to browse the internet. Firefox and Silk browsers have now been released on all Fire TV devices in more than 100 countries across the globe.
With Firefox on the Fire TV, users can access the internet and browse popular websites like Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit. They can access video sharing services, cloud photo services, news and sports websites, and more.
“Starting today, we will be able to expand the already great Fire TV experience by enabling viewers to surface a multitude of web content — including videos — through Firefox,” said Mark Mayo, Sr. Vice President of Firefox.
Amazon mentions in the press release that its Silk browser has been optimized for Fire TV. It offers a “true television viewing experience” with the intuitive controls being optimized for Fire TV devices.
Firefox doesn’t get similar praise in the press release but the app’s description reveals that it can be navigated using the Fire TV remote or app and that it lets users watch videos from YouTube and other popular sites.
