The compact mobile Firefox Lite 1.0.0 browser is presented


The release of the Firefox Lite 1.0.0 web browser which developed under the name of Firefox Rocket earlier and is positioned as the lightweight Firefox Focus option for developing countries adapted for work not systems with limited resources and on low-speed communication channels has taken place. The project develops the team of Mozilla developers from Taiwan and is aimed first of all at delivery in India, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines and China.

Key difference of Firefox Lite from Firefox Focus is use of WebView cursor which is built in Android instead of Gecko that allows to reduce the APK package size from 38 to 2.5 MB and also gives the chance to use the browser on low-power smartphones on the basis of the Android Go platform. As well as in Firefox Focus in Firefox Lite the blocker of undesirable content which is cutting out advertizing, widgets of social networks and an external JavaScript-code for tracking of movements is realized. Use of the blocker allows to reduce significantly the size of the loaded data that is reflected in increase in speed of loading of pages on average by 20%.

of Firefox Lite supports such opportunities as bookmarks on the chosen websites, viewing of history of visits, tabs for simultaneous work with several pages, management of loadings, search of the text on pages, the mode of private viewing (Cookie, history and data in a cache don't remain). Among expanded opportunities: the Turbo mode included by default for acceleration of loading due to cutting advertizing and third-party content; mode of blocking of images (display only text); the button of cleaning of a cache for increase in free memory; possibility of creation of a screenshot of the page; change of color scale of the interface.

From the innovations offered in new release is allocated new design of the interface and support of the night mode allowing to display in night-time the interface in dark tones (level of brightness and color scale is adjusted by the user). On materials: www.opennet.ru
