Mozilla seems to have spent some time to refine this mobile browser since its release for iOS devices last year, and now Firefox Focus is finally available for Android users as well. Those interested can get it for free via Google Play.

Mozilla introduced its Firefox Focus browser last year, but this piece of code has only been available for iOS users ever since. Now, justice prevails, and Android users can grab this mobile browser with a focus on speed and privacy via Google Play.

According to its Google Play page, "The new Firefox Focus automatically blocks a wide range of online trackers — from the moment you launch it to the second you leave it." Erasing the browsing history, cookies, and passwords is also something very easy to do when using Firefox Focus - with a single tap, to be more precise. Mozilla reveals that the Android version has the following new features - ad tracker counter, disable tracker blocker, and notification reminder.

Firefox Focus for Android has just been unleashed on Google Play, so it does not have that many user reviews yet. The current version is 1.0, and it requires Android 5.0 Lollipop or later. After 2,272 reviews, Firefox Focus holds a 4.6 rating on Google Play.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
