Nobody was willing to admit it, but the facility of private browsing found so many real world takers that almost every browser in the market had to provide it. Latest in the list is Firefox 5.0 beta for Android which has a ‘Do Not Track’ feature as well. This means that your movements on the net cannot be tracked if you’re using the new Firefox.
It is an update that arrived about a month after the official Firefox browser for Android was released by Mozilla. Users just need to go to the settings of the browser and click the option “Tell sites not to track me”. This is probably the first browser on the small screen to offer this feature.
People who are used to the desktop browser find mobile browsers slightly lacking, but Mozilla continues to make efforts to bring the mobile browser up to the standard of desktop browsing. Firefox 5.0 beta for Android increases the page loading time on 3G networks. Firefox 5.0 beta browser on mobiles is easier due to the easy synchronization between the desktop and mobile versions of the browser, and the mobile version supports the add ons too.
The lack of support for Flash, however, is surprising since unlike on iOS there are no restrictions on playing Flash videos in the browser. Firefox for mobile was launched as Fennec and it started as a bloated piece of software which has gradually improved into one of the better browsers that Android has today.
