        Fennec F-Droid is based on the latest Firefox release (codenamed Fenix). It has proprietary bits and telemetry removed, but still connects to various Mozilla and Google services that can track users.

        Edit: Quickly checked an article from Mike Kuketz (german): https://www.kuketz-blog.de/firefox-datensendeverhalten-android-app-f-droid-version-browser-check-teil6/

        Fennec contacts mozilla servers to get new lists for the anti fingerprinting and anti tracking technologies. Also xml files with info about vulnarabilities etc. It sends not much.

        Google is contacted when you have google as standard search provider and search suggestions active.

        Otherwise no tracking etc

        From my understanding, Fennec is just Firefox with telemetry disabled. I have added uBlock Origin to mine and use DoT (DNS over TLS) to ControlD to block quite a bit more stuff device wide.

    I use both Mull and Mulch, the latter being a chromium based browser considered the successor to Bromite, which hasn’t been updated in a while. I can recommend both honestly, I just use both for different things.

    Mull can delete all data when closed which is better for privacy so that’s the one I use the most, but Mulch provides a webview for the entire system through a magisk module which improves the entire system.
