Weekend Poll: What browser do you use on your phone?

Your browser is your gateway to the world. With it, you can access a surfeit of information, including sites like ours. From a functional standpoint, most browsers are quite alike, but each has a distinctive set of features. And like anything with specific or distinguishing characteristics, a particular browser is something you develop a taste for. So, when it comes to your phone, which one do you use?

Firefox v57 'Quantum' now available for Android with updated design, improved performance, and Custom Tabs support [APK Download]

Firefox has been falling in marketshare for a number of years now, mostly due to increased competition from Google Chrome. Over the past year or so, Mozilla has been working on a number of massive fundamental changes to Firefox to make it faster and better than ever, and version 57 is the culmination of these efforts. The update was finally released today across all platforms, including Android.

Firefox support for web-based Google Earth is in development

After two years in development, the web-based Google Earth 9.0 debuted earlier this year. The new version runs entirely in the web browser, but it only works in Google Chrome. This is because it used Portable Native Client (NaCl), a technology that allows C and C++ code to run in the Chrome browser. Since no other browser bothered implementing NaCl, the Earth web app was exclusive to Chrome.

That is now changing, as the Twitter account for Google Earth revealed that Firefox support is in the works:

'Toolbox for Google Play Store,' our web browser extension, adds Firefox on Android support and more with v2.0

Back in December, we released a Chrome extension called 'Toolbox for Google Play Store.' It was designed to make the Play Store website much better, with direct links to APKMirror/AP/AppBrain for each app and the ability to sign up for beta programs with one click. A few months later, we released it for Opera, and later Firefox.

But all that time, there wasn't much in the way of new features or major improvements. Today, I'm excited to announce that version 2.0 of Toolbox for Play Store is rolling out to Chrome and Firefox users (Opera should get it in a day or two).

In case you aren't familiar with them, Progressive Web Apps are web apps tailored to function like native applications. They're designed to be fast and work offline, with the ability to be added to the home screen. Chrome has been leading the charge on PWAs for a while now, most recently allowing them to be installed to the app drawer, just like native applications.

Mozilla is testing another new browser called Firefox Rocket, specifically for Indonesia [APK Download]

Mozilla has been pretty busy recently. Last month it updated its main browser, Firefox, with a much needed modern UI makeover, and back in the summer it launched a completely new browser, Firefox Focus. It's much simpler and faster than the standard Firefox app, and it's much more privacy conscious, too, with no tabs and automatic blocking of ads and trackers. There's also a Germany-specific version called Klar.

The company isn't taking a break anytime soon either, and a new unreleased app has popped up on the Play Store. Firefox Rocket appears to be similar to Focus, except it's specifically built for Indonesia and rather than privacy, the key USPs are that it's lightweight and fast, perfect for a region where mobile data and Wi-Fi aren't so cheap or easy to come by.

Allo for web adds support for Firefox, Opera, and iOS

Allo has now existed for more than a year, and there are some people who use it. Not many, by all accounts, but some! Those brave few will today be treated to a more widely available web client. When Allo for the web was launched in August, it only worked in Chrome. Today, support expands to Opera, Firefox, and iOS (sort of).

A couple of days ago Mozilla announced its biggest update to its desktop browser in a long while with the Firefox 57 beta, bringing the speed boosts of the long-awaited Project Quantum. We already knew the Android version wouldn't be quite so revolutionary, but it's here now, and there are a couple of notable changes nonetheless.
