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.

Firefox version 52 is out and gets rid of several plugins like Java

Once upon a time the most popular desktop browser was Internet Explorer, a sort of Dark Age when there appeared not to be much else in the way of choice. Then Firefox came on the scene and changed everything. Bit by bit it ate into Microsoft's share of the browser market to the point of becoming the most used alternative. But that reign was short-lived, too, given how Google fell over itself to make Chrome a point of reference. Even still, Firefox keeps getting updates and improving, as we're seeing again in its version 52, one that brings interesting novelties and changes, like abandoning plugins such as Java or Silverlight. A change whose time had come.
