Mozilla released a new feature in Firefox Private Browsing they called Tracking Protection, to give users more choice and control over their web experience. Tracking Protection allows users control the data that third parties extract from them online.
Private Browsing with Tracking Protection in Firefox for Windows, Mac, Android and Linux actively blocks content like ads, analytics trackers and social share buttons that may record user behavior without their knowledge across sites, according Nick Nguyen, vice president at Mozilla, on the company’s blog.
The updated Firefox also comes with a new Control Center that contains site security and privacy controls in a single place on the address bar or users.
Some Web pages may appear broken when elements that track behavior are blocked, so the updated Firefox made it easy to turn off Tracking Protection in Private Browsing for a particular site using the Control Center.
Mozilla also tweaked the Login Manager and WebRTC, and the Internet browser now has several new HTML5 and Developer tools.
