Ghostery Browser Updates! February 2021

Hey there GhostTesters!

I’m Adamarie, Ghostery’s UX Researcher. Just wanted to pass along some new updates from our team:

We have a handful of improvements in this week’s Dawn update, which includes the following changes:

  • We have implemented Better Fox to improve privacy, security, and performance
  • Ghostery Glow now includes image search
  • We added a link on the new tab for users that want to send us feedback

To put a little more meat on the bone, Better Fox is a set of Firefox configuration changes that makes the browser faster, more private, and more secure while keeping things easy-to-use and non-disruptive for everyday users. These changes were proposed by @yokoffing as a Github contribution on our open source project, so a big thanks to him for this very welcome improvement! If you want to learn more, you can dig into this Github thread that compares some of the default settings options.

As always, if you have any questions or feedback, please share your thoughts here or send us an email at support@ghostery.com.

You can find the screenshots to guide you through here!


Feel free to leave comments about your experience so far!
