About Firefox

How people use the internet has evolved since Firefox was born, and we need to keep up. People deserve an independent agent that gives them control over their identity online and keeps them safe, and we can’t do that with just a browser alone anymore. Over the next three years, we will expand the reach of Firefox.

Firefox will be a browser, but it will also be a set of services and mobile apps. We will continue to improve our core experience, but we will introduce new ideas that would not happen without us. People will choose Firefox because it imbues them with super powers that they can’t get anywhere else. It will always work better than they expect. It will make being online better. We are at our best when the world follows our lead.

We are bad at following others. We will create the future and accelerate it. We are going to matter.

Teams & Products

Active Releases and Roadmaps

Firefox Desktop and Android

In Firefox Desktop, the first half of the year will bring multi-process to the general release for the very first time. Test Pilot will be relaunched as a way for release channel users to opt into experimental features for rapid iteration and feedback. One of these features will be the Activity Stream (placeholder name) which is a searchable, more powerful view of user history.

In Firefox for Android, the first half of the year will focus on providing users with a quality browsing experience that incorporates interactions more in line with their expectations, while bringing relevant Web content to the user in a proactive and digestible way. This includes a revamp of our Top Sites, Bookmarks and other home panels, notifying users when a blog has been updated with new content, or reminding users of recently-saved bookmarks.
