Mozilla Firefox Will Block Malicious Programs For Mining in New Versions

Mozilla Firefox

The second most popular browser in the world and the first among free software Mozilla Firefox from Mozilla Corporation said in its blog about plans to block trackers and other “harmful practices” in future versions of the program.

The web browser will automatically block the scripts of malicious programs connected with cryptocurrencies. This update is part of a large-scale increase in productivity of the company.

According to the vice-president of Mozilla Nick Nguyen, in such way, the leadership tries to prevent attempts by third-party applications to complicate the user’s work. These scripts are usually built into websites and can control the computing power of the user without their knowledge.

This way Mozilla joins other developers. We want to remind you that Opera has already introduced a browser with a built-in blocker for hidden NoCoin miners.
