Mozilla Firefox 10 Privacy Tools

Firefox 10 offers some real improvements over its predecessors when it comes to privacy. After a number of “beta” test launches, the final version of this browser was released January 2012. Since it is so new, most users have not yet upgraded.

So first, we recommend you download it if you are not already using it. Since Mozilla has already released Firefox 11 (yes, less than two months after the final release of 10 they are already releasing 11), you will have to search for secondary sources like this one to download Firefox 10. Unlike the newest version of Explorer, Firefox 10 can be loaded to most operating systems. Check the download page for details.
