"Firefox in your pocket"

Reviewed by / Aug 27, 2014

One of the most complete and balanced Android browsers

Speaking of old dogs: Firefox has a good pocket version to offer. Its cross-platform nature make Firefox for Android almost mandatory if you are already a desktop user. However, Firefox has much more to offer than just tab and bookmark sync. Starting from a polished and neat interface with a handy tab management and a ridiculous amount of features including incognito mode, full html5 support, add-ons and built-in phishing and malware protection.

It doesn't offer data compression mode though which results in poorer speed compared to other browsers. However, the differences are in many cases so trifling that doesn't turn into a big concern. Especially given all the other benefits of choosing Firefox as your default browser.

    Do not cover my expectatives. If you are looking for an advanced browser, Dolphin is far better.
