Mozilla Adds Turbo Mode With Improved Privacy to Firefox on the Fire TV




, ,

Back in December 2017, Mozilla released Firefox on the Fire TV. With the Firefox app on the Fire TV, you have a fully powered browser on the Fire TV.

With Firefox on Fire TV, you can:

  • Easily watch videos from YouTube and other popular sites
  • Go to YouTube and other sites directly from the Firefox for Fire TV home screen
  • Navigate using your Amazon Fire TV remote or app
  • Search and browse the web directly from your Fire TV

Now Mozilla is rolling out Turbo Mode for Firefox on the Fire TV. With Turbo Mode third-party trackers will be blocked speeding up your browsing and protecting your privacy.

Because Google has announced plans to pull their YouTube app from the Fire TV, a web browser on the Fire TV is more important than ever. Now you will be able to view YouTube in your choice of browsers without a YouTube app; however, the experience may not be as polished as it would be with a dedicated app. Hopefully Google and Amazon can find a way to work together again and bring a official YouTube app to the Fire TV.
