Mozilla To Launch A New Web Browser For Android
After Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox is the browser that most appeals to Android users. It follows the developments of the desktop version on its own line and has its own new features.
These developments were being made at a right pace, but now they seem to have stopped. This is just because Mozilla wants to redo Firefox and create a new browser for Android.
It’s still too early to know what Mozilla is preparing for Android, but it is certain that the company plans to introduce a brand new browser and everything the Google operating system can offer.
Mozilla has new plans for Android
For now, this project is still an idea that begins to take shape, without knowing many details. Fenix, named for this future browser, already has its space in GitHub, where Mozilla hopes to put the code it creates.
To develop this new browser Mozilla intends to use Android Components, which are a set of Android libraries created for the development of browsers or applications that use browser components.
The advantage of using Android Components is to have a mature platform that can be used in the developments of its various Android browsers. In addition to Firefox for Android, Mozilla also has Firefox Focus, Firefox Klar and Firefox Rocket available.
Firefox for Android has been paused
The result of this future change is to pause all future Firefox for Android. The message that announced this break in developments came from Emily Kager, one of Firefox’s programmers.
Fennec will stay on Bugzilla but isn’t very actively being worked on right now, but Android Components will the basis of big things on Android in the next year!

Of course, this pause will imply an end to the developments of news for Firefox for Android, but the necessary security fixes will be guaranteed.
It is still early to know what Mozilla is preparing and there is no date for the arrival of the first versions of “Fenix”, but this should incorporate new options for security and privacy while ensuring the most modern to browse the Internet.
