Firefox is one of the best mobile browsers available in the world. The reason behind this is that Firefox is equipped with a plethora of features that make it so much easier for users to find all the information that they need.
On the downside of things, Firefox doesn’t run that well on older smartphones that do not benefit from powerful hardware specs and lots of internal storage space. Luckily, here is where Firefox Lite comes in and saves the day.
Just as Firefox Lite’s name implies, this is a lightweight version of Firefox that has been designed to offer peak-performances on lower-end smartphones. With that being said, today we are going to present the latest update for Firefox Lite and all the improvements that it brings.
Firefox Lite 2.1.12 (19131) Update
The developers who are in charge of Firefox Lite have published a brand-new update earlier this morning and it sports the 2.1.12 (19131) version number. The update is currently rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels and this means that all Firefox Lite fans who use an Android-powered smartphone are eligible to access it.
The update weighs in at 6.08MB and it is targeting smartphones that are running on Android 9.0 Pie. Fortunately, the update can also be installed on smartphones that are powered by a minimum of the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.
Some Firefox Lite fans might be disappointed to find out that the new update doesn’t come with any exciting features or changes to the user interface. The update makes up for the lack of features by introducing a handful of “under the hood” software tweaks and bug fixes that are tackling various issues. Therefore, Firefox Lite will run faster than usual after installing the new update.
Now that we have presented everything there is to know about Firefox Lite’s latest update, let’s go ahead and check out the mobile browser’s highlight features to see if it delivers performances as the original version.
