    Something went wrong. Please disable your blocker on AndroidPolice.com

    My kind of humour when one of the main reasons for switching to Firefox right now is the adblock

      Are you using uBlock Origin? I’m not seeing that anti adblock warning

          You might wanna checkout Firefox, Google is going to cripple adblock on chromium browsers soon

            yeah - they put out statements that they will do everything they can to keep adblockers alive and even implemented a browser-level blocklist for the worst case - but let’s see how that will work once Google starts turning the screws on Chromium tighter

    This is good news about Firefox enabling 200 extensions for the mobile browser. 4 years ago when Firefox disabled all but a few of them, it left me scrambling for another browser. So in the meantime I’ve been using Kiwi Browser because it’s developed to use chrome extensions in android. After Firefox brings back ability to load a lot more extensions, I’ll come home to FF once again.

      Wow. I had completely forgotten that I used to love Firefox mobile as I had customized everything with those extensions, till they disabled them and I switched.

    I’ve preferred firefox on Android, since it doesn’t refresh on me when I minimize it as often as other browsers.

    I’ve been switching back to Firefox. The latest Raspberry Pi OS finally has Firefox as a supported browser, which was the kick I needed, as I tend to use the Pi as my main computer for general tasks. Yesterday I installed the Android Firefox too. I’m trying to reduce reliance on Google as I don’t like what they are trying to do with Chrome.

    Firefox for android is full of proprietary landmines as the upstream source code isn’t entirely free. This can be mediated by running mull from F-droid

    We need to stop using Chromium-based browser ASAP. Using Safari is still better than Chromium. Using Firefox is even better.
