Also because Firefox is multi-process browser switching between open tabs happens instantaneously. The browser’s speed is also apparent in 3D games that are run inside it.

Privacy and Personal Settings

Mozilla Firefox has a special viewing mode called Private Browsing (it can be compared to Incognito Mode in Chrome). When the user is surfing the web in Private Browsing all the traces of his activity are removed. We are talking about passwords, cookies and the history of viewed pages. A very handy feature if, for example, we are planning to buy online a surprise gift, undetected. Such a type of browsing means also faster experience because Firefox then is blocking the load of some tracking cookies.

Similarly to Google Chrome, also Mozilla Firefox lets its users log in to the browser and store the personal data in the cloud. Thanks to this solution we can access our in information from any device, be it our bookmarks, passwords or even tabs with certain web pages already opened.

Thys we can, for instance, finish our shopping activity, which we started on our smartphone by simply moving to the desktop. We also won’t need to send an email to ourselves from a telephone upon finding an interesting webpage or article. It’s enough to bookmark it and then access on another device. The data is securely stored, protected by our password.
