The new release of the Firefox web browser adds support for additional measures that focus on privacy and user security.

With the introduction of the new Firefox Quantum browser in 2017 we changed the look, feel, and performance of our core product. Since then we have launched new products to complement your experience when you’re using Firefox and serve you beyond the browser. This includes Facebook Container, Firefox Monitor and Firefox Send. Collectively, they work to protect your privacy and keep you safe so you can do the things you love online with ease and peace of mind.

In particular, the browser now blocks tracking of user devices by digital fingerprints  by website owners, as well as scripts for hidden mining of cryptocurrencies.

For the first time, intentions to introduce additional measures of protection were announced in August 2018 by Mozilla Foundation. Last month, the update successfully passed the testing phase.

Opera 60 or Reborn 3 desktop browser was previously released with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet and native Web 3 blockchain based internet support. In the future, Opera plans to support not only ERC-20 tokens, but also coins created on TRON blockchain.
