Mozilla today released Firefox 63 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and iOS, offering a new Enhanced Tracking Protection feature, plus Search Shortcuts, Dark theme support, and more.
With today’s release, we’re making progress against ‘removing cross-site tracking’ with what we’re calling Enhanced Tracking Protection,” Mozilla’s Nick Nguyen explains. “To ensure we balance these new preferences with the experiences our users want and expect, we’re rolling things out off-by-default and starting with third-party cookies.”
Enhanced Tracking Protection is designed to effectively block the most common form of cross-site tracking, Mozilla says, meaning cookies and storage access from third-party trackers. You can also disable this feature on a site-by-site basis if you see weird behavior on sites you trust.
Additionally, Firefox 63 includes Search Shortcuts, in the US only, which adds Amazon and Google to the New Tab page. For Windows 10 users, Firefox 63 now supports the Dark theme. And on iOS, Firefox 63 lets you access Siri Shortcuts, so you can do things like open a new tab with your voice.
