Like most people, I primarily browse the internet using the Google Chrome app on my iPhone and iPad. Though it is the most popular web browser in the world, sometimes I wonder if there is something else I would prefer.

Firefox is a good choice for a browser app. Many iPhone users love Safari, while PC users may love Edge. The other browser option I found is perfect when I need to focus on a project or research.

This is Firefox Focus for iPhone, iPad, and Android. We want you to browse the web with less clutter and to hide your tracks from search engines and advertisers.

Firefox Focus only has one tab open, unlike Chrome or other browsers with many tabs. As a result, I am unable to quickly open LinkedIn or ESPN tabs that stay at the top of my browser so that I can check baseball scores.

In case I need to focus on a single task, Firefox Focus keeps me on track. It also speeds up my browser since there is only one tab open at a time.

Firefox Focus also offers privacy features. I am not tracked or shared by advertisers. The information I share online is protected no matter where I go. The browser also speeds up since it isn't constantly sending information to third parties.

Whenever I'm done with a project or ready to log off, I tap the trashcan icon to delete my entire web history.

The option isn't hidden in settings like in Chrome or another browser. On the screen, there is a clear history button.

The web pages load beautifully since ads are blocked on websites. On iPads or tablets, this is especially noticeable. The only thing I saw when I loaded 'Rolling Stone' were images of articles that could be read.

As your default search engine, you can choose Google, Safari, or DuckDuckGo.Firefox Focus is a free web browser app. On a computer, however, Firefox Focus won't work since there is no Firefox Focus for PC
