Firefox Browser is considered to be the best alternative to Google’s Chrome because it does a much better job of handling resources, especially on mobile. However, Firefox Browser is more than an alternative option. Firefox Browser is a “must-have” app if you love surfing the web from your smartphone and its plethora of features proves that.
What’s great about Firefox Browser is the fact that it gets updated on a regular basis with improvements. In fact, a new update has started rolling out today and we are going to cover everything there is to know about it. Not just that, but we are also going to check out what are Firefox Browser’s top features.
Firefox Browser 79.0.1 Update
The new update sports the 79.0.1 version number and it is rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels. Therefore, all Firefox Browser fans who are keeping their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network are eligible to get the update and all the “goodies” that it introduces. Furthermore, the update can be manually downloaded and installed in the form of APK (Android Package Kit).
According to the patch notes, the new update for Firefox Browser aims to improve software stability. The way that the update does that is by introducing a bundle of “under the hood” software tweaks and bug fixes that are tackling various issues. With that said, we are advising all Firefox Browser fans to get the update as soon as possible.
