Do you enjoy using Mozilla’s Firefox on your smartphone but you don’t like the fact that the mobile browser takes up too much internal storage space? If that is the case, then you should be pleased to know that there is a lightweight version that delivers the same premium web browsing experiences. The app is called Firefox Lite and despite being packed with tons of cool and useful features, Firefox Lite weighs in at less than 5 MB which makes it perfect for budget-smartphones.
Firefox Lite 2.0.0(16697) Update
The reason why Firefox Lite is making headlines on our website today is because Mozilla’s developers have just released a new update. The update sports the 2.0.0(16697) version number and just like the web browser itself, this is a lightweight update weighing in at less than 4.96 MB.
In addition, the update is targeting smartphones that are running on Android 9.0 Pie but fortunately, it can also be installed on smartphones that are powered by a minimum of Android 5.0. Lollipop operating system.
The new update introduces a handful of bug fixes that are taking care of various issues which sometimes caused Firefox Lite to lag. Luckily, this is not going to happen anymore and after installing the new update, Firefox Lite will offer a premium mobile web surfing user experience.
Since we are talking about Firefox Lite, let’s go ahead and check out which are the top features that the mobile browser has to offer. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.
