Google Chrome is the most used web browser across the globe. It is available for PC as well as Smartphones. But when it comes to privacy and data protection it is not that promising, That’s why some people prefer Firefox over Chrome. Back in July 2019, Mozilla had announced that Firefox for Android will enter its maintenance phase as the team had begun work on an entirely new browser. Mozilla launched a browser named “Firefox Preview.”
Firefox Preview was then released in the form of a public preview so that interested users can try the new browser. Earlier this month, The Firefox team released Firefox Preview 3.0 with various features to make browsing and bookmarking safer and easier. This week, Mozilla released the first beta version of Firefox Preview 3.0. The browser was created under GitHub Project. Here is the list of the features from Preview 3.0.
- Enhanced Tracking Protection improvements: switch between standard and strict protection settings and better manage the feature.
- Open links in private tabs: option to open any link in a private tab in Firefox Preview. (tap on the link you want to open, select Firefox Preview, pick always).
- Clear browsing data on exist: a new Setting to clear browsing data on exit is available in Firefox Preview 3.0. Previously, it was only possible to clear the data manually (only works when you select the quit option from the menu).
- Choose what to sync: currently, you may select Bookmarks or History only.
- Option to control media autoplay: was not available in the beta version that I used.
- List and manage downloads.
- Ability to add search engines manually.
- Put the navigation bar at the top or bottom of the browser interface.
- Enforce zoom on all websites.
The Beta version of Preview 3.0 is not available on the Play Store. Firefox users who want to test the new browser using a version from Google Play may download the Nightly version instead.
