Mozilla today announced an update to Firefor iOS which enables tracking protection by default and introduces new features for iPad.

With Tracking Protection now turned on by default in both regular and private browsing mode, you can easily control which sites you want to deploy Tracking Protection for — like retail sites — and which ones you don’t. It’s simple, just tap your menu button and you’ll see it listed there!

New features for the iPad include...

● Re-order your Tabs
For some people, when you’re on the web you might be checking out recipes for dinner, but then check email, or look to see what’s the weather like for your weekend. To help get you quickly to the places you want to visit, we’ve added support to organize and prioritize your tabs. For example, you’re waiting for a work email from your boss, now you can move that tab to the either the far left or far right so you can easily access it. Simply, long-press the specific tab and drag it in the order that works best for you.

● Drag & Drop links between Firefox and other Apps
Do you find yourself on a website and you want to share the link with a friend, but find the task of cutting and pasting the link to an email or another app a bit tedious? Well, we’ve made it easier for you. On your iPad, you can now drag and drop links to and from Firefox to any application, whether it’s an email or a tweet.

● More iPad Keyboard Shortcuts
We’re all about making your web browsing experience more efficient, and in this case we’re talking about keyboard shortcuts. We’ve implemented standard navigation keys as well as several improvements for easier tab tray navigation, like Command + Option + Tab to get to and from the all tabs view.

You can download Firefox from the App Store for free.

I find that for most instances using the sharesheet extensions is more convenient for sharing than pulling up a second app and doing the drag n drop.
