Firefox Preview marks a release of the early version for an experimental Firefox browser for Android. Built on GeckoView, Firefox Preview is a pilot for early adopters, developers, and anyone who wants to help make a better, more private Firefox for Android.
Firefox Preview is the first step in building a better mobile browser: one that’s faster, more secure and more independent than any mobile Firefox browser before it. It will combine the speed, privacy, control, and easy-to-use features you have come to expect from Firefox. Like all Firefox products, it will never sell your data for profit.
- Fly faster with GeckoView
- The new Firefox Preview is up to 2x faster than previous versions of Firefox for Android. It’s powered by GeckoView, which gives us the freedom to build a browser that’s faster-than-ever, with the ultimate privacy of Firefox.
- And, because GeckoView allows us to make quick updates, you get cool new features even sooner. Firefox Preview is fast by design, featuring a minimalist start screen, and bottom URL bar to take away any distractions that can slow you down.
- The GeckoView browser engine uses the same technology that powers the ultra-private Firefox desktop browser. That means Preview is built in-house, so your data is never sold for profit on your mobile phone.
- Protect your privacy
- At Firefox, privacy and user control are our top priority. Online privacy isn’t just a policy: it’s a right. Firefox Preview lets you explore the latest privacy features for mobile. One of these is Tracking Protection, which is on by default and totally customizable in Firefox Preview.
- Get more done
- Stay organized with Collections, a new Firefox feature that helps you return to everyday tasks, share tasks across devices, and knock out your to-do list. And, when you join Firefox, you can sync your bookmarks, saved logins, browsing history, and more across all your devices.
- Help build a better Firefox
- Once you’re up and running, take the app for a test drive. Tell us about your mobile experience–what worked and what didn’t. We’re looking forward to gathering your feedback and learning from it. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments, or file a bug on Github.
