Mozilla Just Made Firefox the Most Secure Web Browser for All Users | #linux | #linuxsecurity

Mozilla Firefox is one of the most secure open-source web browsers available.

Undoubtedly, you get the freedom to customize it to harden security, which is why Tor Browser utilizes Firefox at its core.

And, also one of the reasons why I keep coming back to Firefox.

Now, Mozilla has finally enabled a new feature for all desktop users, making it the most secure browser (or as they claim).

Here, I’m not talking about anything new, but an existing feature in Firefox, i.e., Total Cookie Protection. It was introduced with Firefox 86 last year, but it was not enabled by default for all users.

Total Cookie Protection for all users

Whether you are using Windows, Mac, or Linux, the Total Cookie Protection is being rolled out to everyone, making it one of its core features enabled by default.

Initially, to use the feature, you had to enable the strict mode (Enhanced Tracking Protection). But, now, you no longer need to do that.

What is it?

In case you are curious, Total Cookie Protection isolates every website with its cookies. Cookies are small bits of data sent to your browser by a website.

So, the cookies will not be shared among websites, thereby, preventing cross-site tracking.

Separate cookie jars will be created for each website you visit.
