Mozilla Firefox to block ad tracking by default

Mozilla announced that Firefox will soon block web trackers by default. Firefox will also let users control what information they share with sites.

The company said that over the next few months it will be rolling out certain key features which will give users more control over their data and also improve the web performance.

One of the most important changes will be the automatic protection against ad tracking. In Firefox 65 version, the company plans to strip cookies and block storage access from third-party tracking content.

In addition to this, future versions of Firefox will also cut down on harmful data collection or crypto mining practices by websites. The company will also block slow-loading trackers by default to help improve overall web performance.

Mozilla wants to protect users from websites using abusive trackers, improving both performance and privacy.
