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.
• Blocks a wide range of common Web trackers without any settings to set
• Easily erases your history — no passwords, no cookies, no trackers
• By removing trackers and ads, Web pages may require less data and load faster

• We believe everyone should have control over their lives online. That’s what we’ve been fighting for since 1998.
This is a really cool idea. Unfortunately there’s a very prominent “Erase History” icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. (With no way to hide it.) I keep bumping it with my palm and it deletes whatever I was doing. (It’s also the “change tab” button! So you have to be careful not to press it incorrectly.) I think if the erase history button should be moved to a menu.
Using DuckDuckGo cause of the following. Great browser, but it’s really annoying when you close out of the browser it stays in your notification shade and it says “open” or “open and erase”. Why can’t it simply have an option to auto erase when you close? Or at the very least (even though it still doesn’t make sense that it doesn’t erase upon closing) why not have it say “close and erase”? If I wanted to open it, I wouldn’t have closed it in the first place. 🙄 Adds an unnecessary step having to close it, then open it, just to close it again 😕
I think this package of an app has all the privacy sites of all browsers combined to help the user browse anonymously and browse with ease. However, I believe there should be a location blocker or famously known as “Do Not Track” request in the browser to enhance privacy. Overall neat browser for the anonymous.
If you’re like me, you’re tired of seeing an Amazon ad today morning for a product that you searched on Google last night. You’re sick of seeing Facebook ads for something you searched on a whim with little interest. You’re sick of all the ad trackers and analytics trackers that slow the browser down. If you’re anything like that, this is the browser for you. It’s super fast because it loads only the essentials. It’s a bare bones browser using which I now do 90% of my browsing. A must have on your phone. You’ll still need a full browser, but only for about 10-20% of the time. Default this.
