Second in number of desktop users, Firefox has focused for more than 15 years mainly on the protection of its users’ privacy. After more than 70 releases, this open-source Internet browser has become probably the safest browser out there. It adds to its private browsing window a new password manager (Firefox Lockwise) and the ability to block over 200 trackers to protect your privacy.
Though not so big in the smartphone and tablet platforms, Firefox is still a reference when it comes to PC browsers and, especially, when privacy and security are a priority. That is why Firefox collects from its users the minimum data necessary to provide the service they require, and treat them with the maximum respect. Besides, it provides you with tools to prevent other companies from finding out about you more than they need to, and especially to prevent trackers and hackers to make malicious use of your most sensitive information.
In terms of interface design, Firefox is extremely easy to use, and really nice to look at. You are allowed to customize its look-and-feel with one of its many themes and install as many add-ons as you need from its impressive catalog. When browsing the web, you’ll quickly notice that pages are loaded in a snap, photographs and graphics included, though this usually results in higher use of your RAM memory.
Firefox comes now with Lockwise, the only password and login manager you will ever need when browsing the Web. This service supports synchronization, which means that once you’ve saved a password or your login information on one of your devices, this data will be available for you on all your devices running Firefox at once.
Mozilla Firefox is an excellent browser with an excellent level of performance. It may require a bit more of your system memory than its main competitor to load your pages faster, but it beats Chrome in its respect for their users’ privacy and security hands down. Firefox is open source and therefore free to download and use, so you have no excuse to give it at least a try.
