Firefox is one of the best browsers available for mobiles and what makes it stand out is the fast web surfing speed that it offers. However, that’s not all the Firefox does. The mobile browser also provides users with access to tens of useful features that make it easier to find information on the web. If you install Firefox on your smartphone but you don’t have enough storage space or resources, then you should be pleased to know that there is a lightweight alternative.
The alternative is called Firefox Lite and as its name implies, the app is designed specifically for smartphones that do not benefit from microSD support or impressive hardware power. Despite being a lightweight app, Firefox Lite still delivers excellent web surfing performances and access to the same plethora of features.
Firefox Lite 2.1.23 (20138) Update
The reason why Firefox Lite is making headlines on our website today is because it has just received a new update. The update is available to download via OTA (over the air) channels and manually in the form of APK (Android Package Kit). With that said, today we are going to check out all the improvements that the update introduces and also take a look at Firefox Lite’s top features.
The new update for Firefox Lite sports the 2.1.23 (20138) version number and it requires a minimum of Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system in order to run without problems. We also want to mention that the update weighs in at only 6.39 MB and that it is automatically rolling out to all users via OTA channels.
According to the patch notes, the new update for Firefox Lite doesn’t come with any new and exciting features. However, fans of the mobile browser should not be disappointed because the update makes up for the lack of features by introducing a bundle of bug fixes and software tweaks.
At only 6MB in size — and with turbo mode to speed you up — it provides a blazing fast online experience. What’s more, Firefox Lite’s advanced private browsing mode can prevent advertisers and websites from tracking you. You can now check how many trackers are blocked in private mode.
