Mozilla, as part of a sneak peak for loyal fans, announced that Firefox for Android will get some cool new features in 2013. Private browsing is among the new features.

As time goes by, the Firefox web browser gets better and better. The latest Firefox for desktop release, version 18.0 for example, boasts about Retina display support for Lion and up, faster JavaScript performance via the IonMonkey compiler, and prelim support for WebRTC, an open source project aiming to enable the web with Real Time Communication (RTC) capabilities.

As time goes by, the Android version of the Firefox browser will also get better and better. As a matter of fact, Mozilla recently announced, as part of a sneak peak for loyal fans, that Firefox for Android will get these new features in 2013:

Private Browsing – so that you can stealthily surf the web on your mobile Android-powered device as well. Mozilla explained that Firefox users love the Private Browsing feature and a lot of them asked to be able to use it on Android as well. Expect Firefox for Android to get this feature in 2013.

Enhanced Customization – Mozilla is working on bringing themes to Firefox for Android and on giving you the ability to control the content displayed on the browser’s start page. The overall goal here is to provide users with “the best and fastest experience”.

Support for More Devices and Languages– you may remember that by adding support for older ARMv6 processors, Mozilla made it possible for millions of users to use Firefox for Android. This 2013 the company will keep working on making the browser available to more and more people.

“Each and every day, we hear from people who want Firefox for Android on their phone, but it’s not supported yet,” said Mozilla. “The good news is that we want everyone to have Firefox for Android, so we’re bringing support for more devices all the time. And 2013 will be no different. Plus, we’re adding support for more languages, so no matter if you ‘parle Francais’ or ‘habla Espanol’ or ‘说中国’ you’ll be able to use Firefox for Android.”

Firefox for Android is available for download on the Play Store here.
