In case you weren’t convinced that Firefox was a good alternative browser to use on your Android device, a new version has introduced a number of new features that make it even more competitive. The latest update lets you switch quickly between the browser’s 55 supported languages as well as being even easier to clear the app’s browsing history.
Being able to quickly switch between different languages may seem trivial to most of you, but in many areas of the world where multiple languages are used regularly, this is significant. This comes in addition to even more languages now being supported, including: enian, Basque, Fulah, Icelandic, Scottish Gaelic, and Welsh.
Equally exciting news bundled in this new version is the ability to customize your home screens. Mozilla describes this update by noting, “We have created home screen pages that allow you to access content directly from a variety of websites, feeds and services, such as Instagram, Pocket, Vimeo and Wikipedia.”
The last major change now available is the addition of Firefox Sync, allowing users to align their saved passwords across different versions of the browser.
If you haven’t given Firefox for Android a try, download it for free now.
