Firefox, one the most important browsers currently available, along with Google Chrome, is now also available for Android devices. Its list of features and benefits is long enough to strongly consider using it as the default browser on your phone or tablet.

The first interesting characteristic of the app is that it lets you see the browsing history, bookmarks, passwords, and even open tabs that you have on your computer browser, all by just doing a couple of gestures on your Android. Naturally, to synchronize it with your computer browser, you first have to log in.

The second feature is that, as with the computer version, Firefox Browser for Android has many customization options. You can add different extensions, change the general appearance, and make it your own.

The third feature worth mentioning is the adaptation of the keyboard shortcuts to the touch screen. You can, for instance, add a website to your favorites by just shaking the device to one side.

Firefox Browser for Android is an excellent browser. It has everything you can ask for: it is fast, it has a perfectly functional tab system, lots of customization options, and also takes your security into account.
