I tried Firefox Focus a few years before the pandemic when I was testing Android browsers for digital signage. Focus didn’t meet my needs at the time and I moved on. (I ended up using Fully Kiosk Browser. Eventually left Android for Screenly OSE)
Fast forward to now. Most of my screen time is on my phone during my commute and break. The news sites I like to visit are almost unreadable on my phone, due to excessive ads. Google Chrome doesn’t accommodate extensions. A search on ad blocking Android brought me to Focus. I find Focus fast, efficient at blocking ads, and fun to use.
Also available for iOS.
