Firefox for Android and iOS update brings dark theme mode, tabs improvements
Mozilla recently announced a new version of Firefox is now rolling out to Android and iOS devices across the globe. The company has been working on some major improvements since their last release update to help them with future releases.

Today's update brings some of these improvements to Firefox users on both major mobile platforms – Android and iOS. The most important new change is the ability to change your Firefox theme from dark to light with just a tap of the screen.

The latest version of Firefox allows users to switch between dark and light themes either manually or automatically. In order to accomplish this, you can tap Settings in the menu panel, choose Display, and switch between Light or Dark. The alternative would be to simply automatically turn it on by using the Automatic switch.

Also, the update is making it easier for Firefox for iOS users to reach the content they're looking thanks to several improvements to tabs. Tab settings are now manageable in a single view, so you'll be able to make changes faster and easier.

On top of that, Firefox users can now search their open tabs and quickly switch between normal and private browsing. It's also possible to search, filter, and drag the order of your currently open tabs.

Hopefully Chrome will have dark mode one day.. Although I highly doubt it.

Not yet available for me. I'm sure it will make it my way via the play store soon.

I really, really, really want to use FF. But it's just too slow to load pages, and feels bogged down when scrolling. It's a shame because everything else it nice.
