Firefox has a tough stand on Android. With a fraction of the market way below 1 percent, Mozilla is clearly required to do something to breathe new life into its mobile product. However, if you've followed the development of Firefox on Android for the last few months, you may have noticed that it almost stopped. Enter Fenix.
Fenix is a completely new browser Mozilla seems to be working on, and it is redone from ground up with the recent browser engine GeckoView and Android Components developed by Mozilla. Right now, we have nothing but mockups, but they seem to have hope. And they will remind me most of the first Chrome Duet recalls in 201
And a look at the Fenix & # 39; The overview illustrates another more interesting change. Once you're done browsing the web and you close the application, your tabs will be saved in bundles called sessions. When you return to Fenix, you can start a new browsing session or return to the one you started. The scheme below is a great visual representation of that. Individual tabs currently in use are displayed in full width and can be manually saved as sessions. It is, likely to share browsing sessions with other users and devices via Firefox Sync. It is quite a bit of a doubt how often these features will be used, and if it is possible to convince people to rethink their tab management, but in general, these looks reflect the redesigning the current Firefox UI. They can help people if their tabs are not clean and wonder why their phones are getting slower.
Mozilla will not be Mozilla if Fenix does not have many privacy-focused features. It can completely block everything from video and audio autoplaying ads, cookies, tracking, pop-ups, URL redirects, and for people with small mobile bandwidth, even images. Other features are familiar with Firefox and other browsers: There are reading modes, custom tabs, and per-website permissions. These are all old hats for the long term of Firefox users, but it is good to see that we will not lose the functionality through one product replacing another for once (look at you , YouTube Music).
All the details can be changed, as the browser is still under active GitHub development. Mozilla's plan to release Fenix this summer, and transfer current Firefox users to another day.
