It has many features standard among popular browsers like tabbed browsing, built-in spell checking, and password management. It also has a large developer community and provides many developer tools and support.

The web browser boasts a variety of security features, such as enhanced tracking protection that shows you the number of data-collecting trackers being blocked.
