Firefox version 102 emphasizes security and online tracking protection. But the Mozilla Foundation’s web browser gets other welcome improvements and bug fixes.
What’s new in Firefox 102?
When you surf the Internet, you are often tracked using a number of tools that are not always easy to detect. To combat this persistent tracking, Firefox adopts a new browsing profile. Therefore, the strict setting available in the browser’s privacy and confidentiality settings will block social network trackers, cross-site cookies, content used for tracking, cryptocurrency miners and fingerprint scanners. A solid security can disturb the navigation, because some websites will refuse to be displayed if they cannot use this data. In this case, it is necessary to switch to standard protection mode.
Another innovation for the browser, this time a cosmetic regulation, is the possibility to suppress the display of the download panel once you start downloading a file. Right-click on the Downloads button icon to access a menu that allows you to disable the panel’s display.
Finally, PIP (Picture in Picture) video playback mode is improving with subtitle support for HBO Max, Funimation, Dailymotion, Tubi, Disney+ Hotstar and SonyLIV platforms.
What are the advantages of Firefox?
Firefox presents itself as a lightweight and stable browser. It is customizable using the many graphic themes provided and knows how to adapt to the computer interface by adopting a light or dark mode depending on the one selected. It also offers access to a huge list of extensions to enrich it and add functionality. In addition, by creating a Firefox account, open tabs, browsing history and bookmarks can be synchronized between all devices connected to the same account – computers and mobiles. After all, Firefox has never stopped in versions to highlight the privacy of its users. With the help of the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation), the browser has tools to limit tracking by advertising agencies or social networks and blocks pop-up windows by default for added security.
