Here is some good news for frequent users of Chrome when surfing the information superhighway using their mobile devices -- Google has rolled out a new update to its browser that from now on will make mobile browsing a more smoother and frankly, less maddening experience. Mobile users may have already tried to browse the web using their smartphones and tablet devices and observed how web pages sort of jump while they are in the process of loading. There is actually a simple reason for those jumps -- developers design web pages to load the actual content first before queuing images, graphics, and ads.
The crew behind Mozilla’s Firefox are releasing a new mobile web browser app designed to run on devices powered by Apple’s iOS mobile operating system. More significantly, it emphasizes private and secure Internet surfing as the core of its overall interface experience. iPhone owners, meet Firefox Focus, a browser that blocks ad trackers (by default) and wipes out one’s browsing history, including cookies and passwords.
According to the results of a survey conducted by mobile marketing firm Tune, 24.6 percent of smartphone users surveyed said that they had downloaded an ad blocking mobile app or web browser. Tune had polled almost 4,000 owners of smartphone devices in the United States and in Europe, and the results are somewhat intriguing, to say the least, especially in terms of how fast people are attempting to get hold of ad blockers for their mobile devices.
Apple had already done it last year with the roll out of its iOS 9 mobile operating system, launching support for ad blocking within its Safari web browser. This year, it is Samsung’s turn to introduce content and ad blocking within the default web browser installed on its Android powered devices. The update is currently already deploying to handsets that run Android 5.0 Lollipop (or newer), and functions similarly to Apple’s.
Yes, Firefox, Mozilla’s web browser, has now officially landed in iOS powered devices. Just recently, Firefox made its debut on Apple’s App Store as an iOS mobile app, effectively becoming the most recent major mobile browser to be made available to users who own iPhone handsets, iPad tablets, and iPod Touch devices.
