Time to ditch Google Chrome? Rival browser is offering some very tempting new features 1

Fingerprinting is a type of online tracking that’s more invasive than ordinary cookie-based tracking. A digital fingerprint is created when a company makes a unique profile of you based on your computer, software, add-ons, and even preferences.

The latest Firefox browser protects you against this by blocking third-party requests to companies that are known to participate in fingerprinting.

The Firefox update also includes protections against harmful scripts, such as malware that can end up draining your battery.

Away from security and tracking, another nice feature of this update is the option to block annoying notification requests from websites.

Instead of these appearing in a pop-up window, Firefox now simply shows a small speech bubble in the URL bar to alert you that a website would like to send out alerts.

You can then choose to ignore this or click on the bubble to allow notifications to appear from the website.
