A very handy feature if, for example, we are planning to buy online a surprise gift, undetected. Such a type of browsing means also a faster experience because Firefox then is blocking the load of some tracking cookies.

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.
