Firefox For Android Put To Rest Amid 'Fenix'

If reports are to be believed, Mozilla is working on a new internet browser named ‘Fenix’ to replace its existing Firefox for Android. The new browser is expected to be rolled out in the first half of 2019.

Emily Kager, Mobile Engineer at Mozilla, has tweeted a post on her Twitter account and hinted at something that Mozilla is putting into the fray for its Android users that will be coming next year.

Kager’s tweet also confirmed that Mozilla has put Firefox for Android into the maintenance mode that means the app will be getting bug and patch fixes, but that doesn’t call for any significant addition to the internet browser.

The new development has come amid regular updates received by Firefox for Android in the last six months. Mozilla proved to be busy in infusing some of the elements in the Firefox that include Quantum CSS in Firefox 60, support for progressive web apps and HLS videos, support for FLAC, support for custom tabs, permanent tracking protection and a few more.

After the release of Firefox 61, many issues were put to rest but there are no major additions to the same nor I expect anything to come along with the Firefox 62.

Soren Hentzschel, a web developer, has speculated the next Android browser as Fenix which is currently in the development phase and may get some more touch up as the project progresses.

For the Android users who are using the Firefox browser can continue with their current version and for the time being, Mozilla will just release patches for any of the security issues.

Though it is still unclear what Mozilla may toss up with its new internet browser, still we expect the web browsing company to take full stock of the present Firefox for Android and take care of all the glitches which were prevalent earlier. Also, the reports suggest the addition of Android Components which is a collection of Android libraries.
