Firefox Focus | What the Tech? App of the Day
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (WHAT THE TECH?) — Google Chrome is a great browser – lots of tabs, syncs with your other devices – but it tracks everywhere you go and shares that info with advertisers.
If privacy is important to you, Firefox Focus could be the browser you’re looking for.
Firefox Focus has a single tab that lets you concentrate on one single task. It keeps your browsing private and blocks most ads that clutter web pages.
It’s stunning how clean webpages appear on an iPad with no ads.
Each time you open the browser and throughout your using it, the app shows you how many trackers it has blocked and you’ll be surprised. After only five minutes of browsing with Firefox Focus, it blocked 64 trackers from following my activity.
Since it doesn’t allow trackers to run in the background, Firefox Focus runs a little faster than Chrome, Safari, Edge, and even the primary Firefox browser.
When you’re ready to stop browsing, hit the trash can and it instantly clears your entire browsing history.
Firefox Focus is great if you need to focus or don’t want Google or advertisers tracking your every Internet move.
