Mozilla's Firefox Focus web browser can now protect Android users against cross-site tracking while browsing the Internet by preventing cookies from being used for advertising and monitoring your activity. Firefox Focus is a lightweight browser for mobile platforms (Android and iOS) designed to protect users' privacy by blocking ads and content trackers.

Total Cookie Protection, the feature behind this new capability, is designed to force all sites to keep their cookies in separate "jars" to block attempts to track you across the web and build browsing profiles.
"We're bringing it to Firefox Focus on Android, our simple, privacy by default companion app. Firefox Focus on Android will be the first Firefox mobile browser to have Total Cookie Protection," Mozilla said today. "This will help mitigate the cross-site tracking where companies collect information about you like the sites you visit every day or the products you are searching for."
"In combining Total Cookie Protection with supercookie protections, you can ease your worries about companies tracking you from site to site by using Firefox Focus on Android," Mozilla added today.

Firefox Focus is a very good mobile browser. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn‘t tried it out.

I just wish Mozilla would release a desktop version.
