The Famous browser Firefox to Block Cryptojacking by Default
The Vice-President Nick Nguyen, of Product Strategy at Mozilla, has recently revealed that their popular Firefox browser will block cryptojacking by default in the near future.
This is done as part of a series of moves meant to help combat tracking and the loss of performance on the web. He explained to unfamiliar users that some “sites have deployed cryptomining scripts that silently mine cryptocurrencies on the user’s device.
Practices like these make the web a more hostile place to be. Future versions of Firefox will block these practices by default.”
As we previously reported, the developers of the Opera browser announced they will start offering protection against cryptocurrency mining scripts right out of the box back in December 2017, and the Brave browser has been offering protection against malicious cryptocurrency miners by default since September of the same year.
