Firefox for Android adds 'do-not-track' feature

Summary:Mozilla released the new mobile browser beta with a Do Not Track feature that will turn your device free from trackers.

Mozilla released the new mobile browser beta today with a Do Not Track feature that will make Firefox turn a blind eye to your browsing behavior. The update comes almost a month after Mozilla took the wraps off of its official Firefox for Android release.

Just mosey on over to the browser settings to turn on private browsing before surfing with the certainty of not being watched. To do so, slide the option "Tell sites not to track me" to yes.

It might overstate the matter to say that Mozilla has planted its flag in browser history for being the first mobile browser to offer the feature, but this beta build is certainly the first offering of its type that we've seen on the small screen.
