It`s Done! A year long testing of a browsing mode in Firefox that doesn`t track your browsing habits on your PC but that also blocks online services that could track you while you`re surfing the web has been finished.
Finally we will be able to enjoy our privacy in the web. On 3rd of November Mozilla launched a new browser Firefox 42 that include tracking protection.
You can download now the Firefox 42 from Firfox.com for desktop and Firefox users will get their update soon.
According to Mozilla Half a billion people around the world are using Firefox; this makes the browser lucrative for developers to target for advertising and gathering consumer behavior data.
But the new private browsing mode in Firefox has completely taken pole apart turn. Now, Private Browsing doesn`t save a bit of you`re browsing history and also it blocks website elements (ads, analytics trackers, and social share buttons) that could track you.
Previously Mozilla users were depended only on browser ad-ons like Ghostery and Privacy Badger for this specific purpose.
Mozilla has also included a control centre for controlling all of the Firefox`s site security and privacy controls. For your convenience Mozilla has allowed to disable track protection as some pages may appear broken when you surf on Web.
To try it out, click the hamburger menu button (three lines in the top right corner), click the New Private Window icon to launch a Private Browsing session, and you’ll see a screen that confirms Tracking Protection is on. Now browse on whatever you want without the fear of getting caught.
Mozilla has lately gotten a lot of flak for adding features like a messenger and built-in Pocket support to Firefox. The company is getting lots of support from millions of Privacy fans now. Good! Well move MOZILLA.
