Worth to Try
Honestly, many people love the “black horse” just like when you use Windows Phone in the middle of Android and iPhone which are so popular. Meanwhile in the browser world, almost all systems use Chromium as the base such as Vivaldi, Opera, Edge, Chrome and many more. Firefox becomes the only one beside Safari from Apple that uses the different machine. This is great because it will make the healthy competition.
Beside that, the new version of Firefox for Android is worth to try. For some people, the most interesting part is of course the dark mode and also the navigation box or the toolbar which can be placed on the bottom (there is no reason why Google pulled out this feature from Chrome). If you are interested to try, then you may download the Firefox and then wait for the update or for the Beta version if you really can’t wait anymore.
If you want to use this feature with Chromium as the base but you want navigation box is still on the bottom, then the recommended system to use is Kiwi. If you are interested in using Firefox eco, then you can try some other Firefox apps besides browser.
