Firefox Beta Features

Do Not Track lets users tell websites they want to opt-out of online behavioral tracking. To turn Do Not Track on, simply go to the Preferences option in the Firefox Menu (or Preferences option in Browser Tools on Firefox for Android) and check the box next to “tell websites I do not want to be tracked.” When this option is selected, a HTTP header will be sent signaling to websites that you wish to opt-out of online behavioral tracking. You will not notice any difference in your browsing experience until sites and advertisers start responding to the header. Visit the Mozilla Do Not Track site for more info.Firefox for Android is the first mobile Web browser to offer the Do Not Track privacy feature. This release also includes performance enhancements that make page load time faster (especially on 3G networks) and improves panning for faster scanning of websites. Full details are available in the release notes.
