More than just a browser – part 2
by Irina Sandu
One of the things which makes Firefox on the desktop a top browser are the add-ons. You can get them on Android, too. Inside Firefox for mobile, in the Settings menu, as well as on the Start Page are start points on finding and installing mobile-optimized add-ons. We are currently working with add-on developers on having lots of useful mobile add-ons.
Personas integrate with Firefox’s minimalist interface to bring a bit of colour – or less – to the browser’s theme. They are not integrated into the browser, but can be installed as an add-on. You can choose among over 250 000 different Personas or you can create your own. For consistency, you can have the same colour scheme on your Firefox on the desktop or on mobile or adapt them differently according to your OS or background design.
The Awesome Screen is the mobile equivalent of the desktop Awesome Bar. We’ve made it easier to go to a page with finger-optimized menus and an easy one-tap choice of the search engine, for when you want to search. Typing should be minimized if you are using Firefox Sync and access to your open tabs from your other devices is also there.
