How to use Firefox Focus for PC free – Windows 10, Mac
Download the Firefox Focus app on PC. The new Firefox Focus automatically blocks a wide range of online trackers from the moment you launch it to the second you leave it.
What is Firefox Focus PC app
Your Web browsing these days is subject to more tracking and profiling than ever. Though most browsers offer a privacy mode that erases any cookies or browsing history after you’re done with your session, they don’t hide your browsing from third-party sites like advertisers that track your activities on the Web.
Apple device owners have the option to use Firefox Focus for PC as a standalone mobile web browser or as a content-blocker in Safari. You can launch Firefox Focus by giving Siri the appropriate voice command. If you own an iPhone X or later, enable Face or Touch ID to unlock the browser when it’s in the background
By eliminating excessive tabs and blocking various types of online trackers, Firefox Focus for PC separates itself from other popular browsers such as Google Chrome and Safari. Focus’ core privacy and security features are the same across Android and iOS platforms. The same goes for page actions (sharing, copying, finding text) and URL autocompletion.
Some features, however, are only available on specific platforms. Android’s version of Firefox Focus for Windows offers custom tabs, stealth mode, and the option to disable tracking protection (site exceptions).
Focus, focused as it is on the single goal of private browsing, is as bare bones as it gets. Every time you start the app, it looks exactly the same: a search-or-address box on a purple field. That’s because whenever you close the app, all your browsing tracks are removed. Forget about bookmarks, history, password saving, or even tabs.
You’ll experience the mobile Web in a newly simplified way: Most ads, including all those with tracking code, are removed. Of course, sites have tricky ways of displaying advertising to make it appear as regular site content, so don’t expect a completely commerce-free Web.
The app also doesn’t offer an option to forget the browsing session when you switch away from it. You either have to tap the Erase button (which is easy enough), or swipe up on it in the iPhone double-tap task switcher, thereby actually shutting down the app. This required extra step may sound like a flaw to some, but most will prefer it to lose their sessions every time they jump momentarily to another app.
