This browser known as Firefox Focus is a very little open source browser that has a weight of 5MB. Most times it is been considered as incognito window of Chrome but it doesn’t have tabs neither bookmarking feature.

Not different from other open source Android browser, it has automatic feature which blocks ads and even block trackers. But one feature which differentiate this browser with other browser is that it deletes your browsing history automatically without you doing it yourself and also it clears cookies automatically after closing the browser, it thereby deletes all your history, cookies and password as soon as the bowser is been exited. 

Haven known that Firefox Focus is very light, that is to say that it should not have most features like other browsers such as find in page, bookmarking features and also there is no way of customizing the browser because there is no option for that available. Some website may not work as expected due to some blocking ads and others. But with Firefox that will be neglected.

The interface of Zirco browser is not actually the best in terms of user interface, it take a novice to understand the environment before working with the app. For example for you to get to the settings, you have to tap on the menu icon (three vertical dots) appearing next to the navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen which is not looking almost like Android app designs so far.

Notwithstanding Zirco can still do the work perfectly well when it comes in terms of browsing.
