Firefox Focus blocks online trackers and ads, so you can browse anonymously -- and faster.

Pros

Great for protecting your online privacy: With Firefox Focus, you can block trackers in ads, analytics, and social media; as well as other content trackers and Web fonts. The first three types are blocked by default, so you don't have to remember to switch to incognito mode. Go to Settings to block content trackers and Web fonts.

Safari integration: Under Settings, you can also enable Safari integration to block trackers in Apple's native browser.

Easy to use: Firefox Focus works like any other browser -- input your URL and go. But when you're done browsing, tap the Erase button on the top right to delete your cookies, search, passwords, and browsing history. If you ever get confused, Firefox Focus is full of explainers and has a robust Help section.

Faster browsing: Webpages load much faster when online trackers and ads aren't slowing them down.

Cons

Yahoo Search is the default search engine: Yahoo Search is an odd choice for Firefox Focus's default search engine, as it just suffered one of the largest data breaches of all time. There is currently no way to change this default, but Mozilla says that a future update will bring search engine choice.

Bottom Line

Firefox Focus helps protect your privacy while you browse the Web. When the app adds the ability for you to choose an alternate, more trusted search engine, this browser will become even more competitive.

Developer's Description

Browse with privacy on your side with automated online tracker blocking and history erasure.
Browse like no one's watching. The new Firefox Focus automatically blocks a wide range of online trackers -- from the moment you launch it to the second you leave it. Easily erase your history, passwords and cookies, so you won't get followed by things like unwanted ads. "Private browsing" on most browsers isn't comprehensive or easy to use. Focus is next-level privacy that's free, always on and always on your side -- because it's backed by Mozilla, the non-profit that fights for your rights on the Web. AUTOMATIC PRIVACY. Blocks a wide range of common Web trackers without any settings to set. Easily erases your history -- no passwords, no cookies, no trackers. BROWSE FASTER. By removing trackers and ads, Web pages may require less data and load faster. MADE BY MOZILLA. We believe everyone should have control over their lives online. That's what we've been fighting for since 1998.
