Firefox for Android already supports extensions, but Mozilla has recently made it easier to port desktop versions to the mobile platform. This has led to a surge in development, with over 400 new extensions set to be available for Android users on December 14th.
The company has made it easier for developers to port their extensions by publishing a set of instructions on how to adapt desktop extensions to the Android version of the browser. This has resulted in a much higher number of extensions being ported than the company originally expected.
In addition to making it easier to port extensions, Mozilla is also changing the design of the extension store to make it easier to use. The company has also said that it will be adding a couple of dozen new mobile add-ons to the extension store before the official launch on December 14th.
Here are some of the benefits of using extensions in Firefox for Android:
- Extensions can block ads, which can improve your browsing experience and protect your privacy.
- Extensions can add new features to Firefox, such as the ability to save web pages to Pocket or take screenshots.
- Extensions can help you manage your passwords and other security settings.
