Just found that Mozilla released a new version of Firefox for Android called Firefox Focus, with focus on being better at protecting user privacy.
What would it take to get Firefox Focus into F-Droid, is it feasible?
I understand that there are some major issues with Firefox inclusion but I do not know the details or the current status. Has the way Mozilla has decided to take the project (blobs from untrusted third parties, inclusion of non-free add-ons etc.) simply taken it too far away from the ideals of freedom that F-Droid is based upon so that inclusion is simply not possible without a major rewrite or are the issues more practical with a complicated and cumbersome building process that would require huge amounts of work to include and maintenance to keep up?
Edit: Here is their blog post about the release:
By using words like “consumer” I’m guessing their focus is not on freedom.
I wonder what the way forward is when it comes to a browser that is free as in freedom, what is the most promising project today?
