Latest news about Web Browsers for Business
2019. Opera Touch brings website cookie blocking to iOS
Opera Touch for iOS is getting a notable new feature - cookie blocking. It can block those annoying dialogs that ask you to accept the website’s cookies. These are particularly problematic on mobile, where they often entirely interrupt your ability to view the content, as opposed to on many desktop websites where you can (kind of) ignore the pop-up banner that appears at the bottom or the top of the page. Cookie dialogs have become prevalent across the web as a result of Europe’s GDPR, but many people find them overly intrusive. Today, it takes an extra click to dismiss these prompts, which slows down web browsing — especially for those times you’re on the hunt for a particular piece of information and are visiting several websites in rapid succession.
2019. Opera for Android adds built-in VPN
In 2016 Opera launched a free VPN app for Android (followed by an iOS launch) but the app was discontinued last year. Now Opera will offer the free VPN service again, as part of its Opera browser for Android. The feature is currently undergoing testing and is slowly rolling out to Opera beta users. Once you turn the option on, you can choose your virtual location — the choices aren't as good as you'd get from a commercial VPN service, but you do get to choose whether you want to be virtually located in Europe, America or Asia. Opera claims it's not keeping any usage logs. Opera already offers a free, unlimited VPN as part of its desktop web browser. Just like that version, the mobile browser also offers you to bypass VPN when accessing search engines.
2018. Firefox will now alert you when one of your accounts was hacked
Earlier this year, Mozilla announced Firefox Monitor, a service that tells you if your online accounts were hacked in a recent data breach. All you have to give it is your email address and it’ll use the Have I Been Pwned database to show you if you need to worry and what data was compromised. Today, Mozilla is taking this a step further by also letting you sign up for alerts for when your accounts appear in any (known) breaches in the future. Mozilla notes that Firefox Monitor is just one of a number of new data and privacy features the organization has on its roadmap for the next few months. It’s clear that Mozilla is positioning itself as a neutral force and overall, that seems to be going quite well, especially given that Google’s Chrome browser is facing a bit of a backlash these days as users are increasingly concerned about their privacy and the vast trove of data Google collects.
2018. Firefox ends support of Windows XP, Vista
Mozilla shut down Firefox's support for Windows XP and Windows Vista, ending browser security updates for the outdated operating systems. Support for the two past-expiration-date OSes - Microsoft dropped Windows XP in April 2014, Vista in April 2017 - ended with Firefox ESR 52.9, which was released June 26. That version was supplanted by Firefox ESR 60.2 on Sept. 4. Firefox ESR, for "Extended Support Release," is a version Mozilla issues to customers - primarily business users - who value stability over sexy new features. Unlike the standard Firefox, each ESR version receives only security updates during its tenure. About once a year, Mozilla replaces the existing ESR with the then-current Firefox, then maintains both the old and new ESR versions during a 12-week overlap period. Firefox ESR 52's overlap with ESR 60 began May 7, when the latter launched, and ended Sept. 4, when that date's security patches were not provided for the former. The only Top 5 browser still supporting Windows XP is Opera.
2018. Tor Browser comes to Android
Anonymous browser Tor is now officially available for Android. But to run the app users will need to also download the Tor Project proxy app, Orbot. Tor Project’s anonymous browser uses a system of decentralized relays that bounce a user’s data to anonymize internet activity. This makes it almost impossible for ads, location trackers and even government surveillance to follow your tracks across the web. Following this release, Orfox, the longstanding Tor Project-approved browsing app for Android, said it will be sunset by 2019.
