It can block many web trackers to protect user privacy.
Mozilla has launched a browser for iOS users to offer improved security features that block unwanted trackers.
By default, the new browser Firefox Focus secures the users’ privacy by blocking many web trackers, including analytics, social, and advertising.
Mozilla said: “Firefox Focus is set by default to block many of the trackers that follow you around the Web.
“You don’t need to change privacy or cookie settings. You can browse with peace of mind, feeling confident in the knowledge that you can instantly erase your sessions with a single tap – no menus needed.”
The browser does not have traditional tabs, menus or pop-ups.
Upon opening, it provides users with a text entry field to directly type a search term or a web address.
Users can erase their browsing history by pressing the relevant button placed at the top right corner of the screen.
Mozilla said: “For the times when you don’t want to leave a record on your phone. You may be looking for information that in certain situations is sensitive – searches for engagement rings, flights to Las Vegas or expensive cigars, for example.
“And sometimes you just want a super simple, super fast Web experience – no tabs, no menus, no pop-ups.
“Firefox Focus gives you just that.”
In December last year, the company rolled out content blocker, named as Focus by FireFox, for iOS.
The latest launch is a rebranded version of the content blocker and it offers two advantages for the users.
While Firefox Focus continues to operate as a Safari content blocker on iOS, users can take advantage of tracking protection on both Safari and Firefox Focus.
The new app is made available for download from Apple’s app store.
Mozilla said that the technology used to track users on the web significantly accounts for what makes mobile web pages slow.
It said: “Because Firefox Focus blocks these trackers, it is likely you’ll notice a performance boost on the many sites that track your behavior.”
