In an era when tech companies are attempting to squeeze more data and more dollars out of users, it is refreshing to know that there are organizations that aim to make the Web a better, more functional place. Mozilla is one. Today it unveils the latest version of Firefox for Android. While the browser is an excellent update, the most interesting thing about it is what it says about the future of the mobile Web.
Fast, Functional, Secure
To many mobile users, a browser is a browser is a browser. As long as it works, they do not really care what’s under the hood. Yet not all browsers are created equal, especially on mobile. Some browsers render mobile websites better, some can sync data from a desktop browser, some specialize in privacy. When it comes to performance and function, no one mobile browser is perfect.
