Firefox Lite 2.0 for Android is Out Now [APK Download]
Mozilla Taiwan’s Firefox Lite — previously Firefox Rocket, then Lite, then Rocket again — is pleasingly snappy to use, with a focus on light browsing and privacy. The Chromium-based app blocks ads and trackers by default, allowing for lightning-fast browsing under the decreased bandwidth. After having its name changed four times, Firefox Lite has been updated to version 2.0. Lite’s new update comes with some fun and handy features, my personal favorite of which is built-in, full-page screenshots. On the home page you’ll have access to a number of games (fun) as well as a very pared-down news page (handy). Both pages load quickly and the games launch right away within the browser. Also on the homepage is a search bar specifically for comparing product pricing, which may come in especially handy considering the upcoming holidays. Left: Quick access to in-browser games. Middle: Compact news page. Right: Price comparison tools. Firefox Lite does have a few minor shopping-related features region-locked to Asia, but in all the 2.0 update is worth checking out if you’re mindful of your privacy and are on the prowl for a light, airy browser. If you’re outside of Asia and looking for a download, you can snag your copy from APK Mirror.
