I have just submitted a Fennec update to 81.1.1. Should be available soon™. This version brings a lot of changes, like a new UI and modular codebase. The bad news:
- Mozilla now tracks you even more actively using proprietary 3rd party services. I removed all tracking I found. (Firebase, Adjust and Leanplum libraries were replaced with stubs, so some analyzers can erroneously report their presence in the APK.)
- The new UI may break your habits and disappoint you. (IMHO it’s not that bad as one can conclude from reading r/Firefox.)
- Android 5.0 or later is now required. Mozilla decided so.
- x86 devices are not supported anymore. I stumbled upon linkage errors and gave up. Help is welcome.
The good news is that Fennec F-Droid is alive and continues to be truly free software.
