If you enjoy using Firefox on your smartphone but don’t like the fact that the mobile browser uses lots of processing power and internal storage space, then we have some great news to share with you. The developers behind Mozilla Firefox know that not everyone can afford to spend thousands of dollars on the latest flagship from Apple or Samsung and this is why they have created Firefox Lite.
Just as the browser’s name implies, Firefox Lite is a lightweight version of the original mobile browser. However, you shouldn’t be fooled by the fact that this is a lightweight browser and believe that it doesn’t deliver the same performances as the original Firefox does. Despite measuring in at only 4MB, Firefox Lite is still a lighting fast and lightweight browser.
Firefox Lite 1.9.1 (13361) Update
The reason why Firefox Lite is making headlines on our website today is because the developers have recently released a new update. The new update for Firefox Lite sports the 1.9.1 (13361) version number and it’s being rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels right now.
Therefore, the only thing that Firefox Lite users need to do in order to download the new update is to simply keep their smartphones connected to a stable internet connection. We also want to note that the only system requirement or the new update is to use a smartphone that is running on a minimum of Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.
Since we are talking about Firefox Lite, let’s go ahead and see which are the top features that this lightweight browser has to offer.

This incredibly mini size browser is less than 4MB, taking up almost no space on your phone.
