Mozilla Firefox is one of the most revered browsers around the world. When the browser was launched in a nickname known as Phoenix back in 2004, it was an entirely different internet era back then.
If you visit the older version of the browsers, see its screenshots, you will easily understand how far we have come in more than a decade. In the past, during the early 90s the Internet Explorer by Microsoft was the king of all browsers. The only other option in those time was Netscape Navigator on PCs and Apple Macs had Safari browser later in the days.
When Firefox made its debut, it was a time when it looked like no other new brand could make their presence felt in the internet world. However, they not only competed with the mighty internet explorer and also went head on against Google Chrome. Statistics these days do indicate that Chrome has a mighty user base but Firefox continues to innovate in every corner.
Besides, the brand Mozilla has also moved towards a different and much needed concept of privacy. The browser doesn’t collect too much data when compared with a Google product and it also adds some interesting new features. According to rumors, Mozilla Firefox will soon get a free VPN that you can use to bypass strict guidelines by countries.
Be it China or USA, everyone wants to block information from being shared. Mozilla Firefox is at the pinnacle of these by offering a VPN and Opera already does it. So, it won’t be long before they come up with their own solution. Mozilla Firefox turns 15 today and it is a great occasion both for the developers and long time users who are dedicated to their amazing open source services.
They have also launched an Android version which is being termed as Firefox Lite now and is said to be super fast, giving you instant access to information.
