Mozilla founded by the members of Netscape, the open source software company, in 1998, now has three top notch browsers which are dominating the browsing market in their own category. Mozilla’s Firefox, which is called the company’s flagship and recommended by millions is still counted among top three browsers in the world, for more secured browsing, Mozilla has “Firefox Nightly” and “Firefox Focus”.
Developing a new browser for Android market despite the fact that Firefox having download over 100 million, is yet to be answered from the developers’ side. Fenix developers are yet to put forward the reason behind the development of a new browser and cut away the air of mystery that surrounds the organization.
Last month Mozilla was said to working on a browser which is completely operated by voice. “Scout”, which doesn’t require any mouse or keyboard to operate will completely rely on user’s voice to surf the internet.
