Firefox: block ad trackers by default


The Mozilla Foundation he said that it intends to apply blocking to all ad trackers in future versions of Firefox by default. firefox
The new settings are designed to be implemented gradually, starting with an initiative that focuses on blocking trackers that slow down page loading.

After that, the Mozilla Foundation plans to remove the tracking that can be done between the pages, and then proceed with the exclusion of cryptomining which also slows the performance of the computer.

"Some pages still want user data in exchange for content," Mozilla's Nick Nguyen said in a blog post, "but now they have to ask for it. It's a positive change for people who until now had no idea what they were being asked to do.

Firefox has already begun to test these features at Firefox Nightly, a pre-release Firefox updated every night. This version of Firefox currently includes a feature that prevents ad trackers slowing down the loading of pages. The Mozilla Foundation is planning to test this feature in September, and if it does, it will start blocking ad trackers by default on Firefox 63.

Firefox Nightly also precludes site-cooked tracking through cookies and is also planning to conduct a study on this topic. The goal is to make this setting available in Firefox 65.

Finally, the Mozilla Foundation said that future releases of Firefox would eliminate by default "deceptive practices that collect invisibly identifiable user information or degrade the user experience," using techniques such as fingerprinting or cryptomining.
