Firefox's new IM, privacy features are worth a look

Bill Snyder | Sept. 28, 2015
Mozilla announced two new versions of its Firefox browser, an official release with valuable new IM features, and another beta version that adds advanced privacy controls.

The feature also blocks some ads, but that's not its primary purpose. If ads don't contain trackers, Firefox 42 will load them.

The new private browsing mode also has a "Control Center" that provides quick access to all of Firefox's security and privacy controls. It's a notable enhancement, because it makes it easier for users to take advantage of the safeguards. And because some websites won't load if you disable tracking, Mozilla added a button to the toolbar that lets you turn off the no-tracking feature for individual sites.
