Design – 4
The design of the application is perfectly optimized to work on smartphones and tablets. It has got a minimalistic style that is also used in the PC version. There is nothing superfluous: you will find only the most necessary things for the work. The app has got a white background that is comfortable for searching, buttons are also white with the black outline. Simplicity in design makes the performance of the app even better because Firefox saves much traffic.
Performance – 4
Firefox is tied to your needs and lets you control web surfing. That is why the product has been developed with intelligent features that make assumptions based on your history. Firefox anticipates your queries and intuitively displays several suggested and previously searched results.
By the way, there is a very convenient feature for those who like to read. It allows to view pages without advertising and pictures, there remains only text. Also, in this mode, the size and font of the text can be changed. You may save the page and return to reading offline.
With the help of special add-ons, it's possible to extend the functionality of the browser. So, for example, AdBlock will allow you to search for the information without ads. There are not so many add-ons, but quite enough, considering that this is just a mobile browser.
Firefox isn't so fast as Chrome, but it also can't be called slow. Many people criticize the app for its speed. Anyway, Firefox can be called one of the most popular and convenient browsers.
Usability and Platforms – 5
We can say that the app is very user-friendly. You'll understand how to use Firefox at the first try. On the start screen, there is an address-search line, a button for managing tabs and a link that allows you to switch to managing add-ons. Moreover, the approach to the search is quite flexible.
Firefox is a cross-platform browser, available on a large number of operating systems, including Windows, Ubuntu, Android and iOS. Anyway, it was originally an open source project and was available only on PCs.
To access bookmarks, browsing history and tabs from other devices, you will need to set up Firefox Sync. It's easy to do it – on the corresponding desktop computer in the "Sync" section select the item "Connect to device" and enter the code displayed on the display of the mobile device.
In-app purchases – 4
The application is free of charge, and there are no in-app purchases. That's why you can see ads in this program. Earlier, there was not so much advertising, but its number has increased in the latest version of the app. Anyway, it doesn't influence the functionality of Firefox too much.
Firefox is a popular application that can be installed even on weak gadgets. It provides privacy, security and such necessary functions as saving of the text in pdf, search recommendations, and others. Anyway, it is inferior to Chrome in its speed. I can say that it's not perfect, but a very good browser.
