@kytta Open source can help. 🙂 Most actions that improve privacy will also save data.
Install the following plugins:
* uBlock Origin (get the name exactly right)
* Either Privacy Badger or Ghostery
They all cut down on unwanted tracking and/advertising.
Finally, install another app: either Blokada or TrackerControl, which reduce tracking and ads in the OS and in apps other than the browser.
I used NoScript for years, and it certainly improves security, but you have to be both knowledgable and dedicated to stick with it. The add-ons I recommended here are more or less set-and-forget. However, if you want really granular control then, yes, NoScript is the way to go, and I see that it's available for Firefox on Android.
@me it is, but most of the time it's wonderful, I forgot how slow the normal net was when I used the browser on a colleague's pc :p
