Firefox lands on Amazon’s Fire television

Firefox places on Amazon’s Fire TV

If you own an Amazon Fire television, it’s simple to utilize Firefox to browse the internet in your television. As Mozilla and Amazon announced today, Firefox, which joins Amazon’s own Silk browser on the device, is available for the browsing requirements.

“Bringing Firefox to Fire television is a thrilling brand-new way to attain our users and serve up a lot more of the total internet to any or all,” said Mark Mayo, Sr. Vice President of Firefox, in today’s announcement. “Firefox happens to be about taking cyberspace directly to people it doesn’t matter what device they’re using. Beginning today, we are in a position to increase the already great Fire TV experience by allowing watchers to surface numerous web content — including video clips — through Firefox.”

While Amazon’s very own press release boasts about how its Silk internet browser happens to be optimized for usage from the Fire television and with the Fire television remote, the business does not very offer Mozilla’s browser exactly the same variety of billing in today’s statement. As far as we could tell, Mozilla did quite a bit of strive to integrate its web browser utilizing the Fire TV remote and app, though.

Additionally, considering the fact that YouTube will most likely fade away from Amazon devices at the beginning of January, through a spat between Amazon and Bing, it’s not surprising that Mozilla is invoicing its internet browser as a simple way to view YouTube video clips. Unsurprisingly, Amazon tends to make no reference to YouTube with its announcement today, but also for Mozilla, this can be certainly a good way to get a few more people to put in its browser.
