The Verge reports Firefox is testing a new feature that will keep websites from tracking users through their browsers via fingerprinting. Additionally, the browser is adding measures to block cryptocurrency-mining scripts that can extract digital currency by compromising a computer's resources. The added security goes along with Mozilla's new focus on user privacy, which users first saw in January when Firefox 65 was released with its new privacy features. The Verge also reports on Jumbo, a new privacy assistant for iOS that helps users manage privacy settings on social media profiles.
