At the moment, what we are looking at here is only a preview but eventually, it will become Mozilla's default Firefox browser for Android.
In 2017, Firefox rolled out significant changes to its desktop browser 'Quantum' with an aim to improve its speeds, user interface and experience. Now, Firefox is doing something similar to Mozilla's GeckoView browser engine that powers its Android apps including Firefox Reality and Firefox Focus among others.
"While all other major Android browsers today are based on Blink and therefore reflective of Google’s decisions about mobile, Firefox’s GeckoView engine ensures us and our users independence," said Firefox team in its blog post.
"Building Firefox for Android on GeckoView also results in greater flexibility in terms of the types of privacy and security features we can offer our mobile users. With GeckoView we have the ability to develop faster, more secure and more user-friendly browsers that deliver unprecedented performance," Firefox added.
