Mozilla version 42 of its Firefox browser that features a built-in adblocker. Blocking ads is part of a feature Mozilla calls Tracking Protection and should protect the privacy of users. The feature should also provide user with additional features to have more control over their privacy.
Mozilla boasts that the feature makes Firefox the best privacy protection browser, “No other browser’s Private Browsing mode protects you the way Firefox does—not Chrome, not Safari, not Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer”, according to the browser developer.

Firefox’s Private Browsing with Tracking Protection will actively block advertisements, social media buttons and analytics trackers. Because some websites might not properly function when elements are blocked it’s easy to disable the feature for specific websites.

Mozilla has also added a new Control Center that contains site security and privacy controls in a single place in your address bar.

What would be the difference compared to Epic Browser, that claimed to be the most secured and private browser?

Epic Browser is based on Chromium source-code and originates from India (according to Wikipedia's sources), primarily an alternative to Google Chrome. It's also Proprietary (license).

From their About page:
"The Epic Privacy Browser is first ever web browser built on Chromium (like Google's Chrome browser) engineered to protect your privacy. Epic is in always-on "private browsing mode", so on close of Epic all browsing data is deleted (while you're browsing as little as possible is stored). Epic has removed all Google tracking and blocks hundreds of other companies from tracking you. If you turn on Epic's encrypted proxy, you have protection from snooping by your ISP and government too."​

Whereas Mozilla Firefox is Gecko-based, MPL (license) and has a better range of customisation options.
