Use Firefox for Android & Firefox Focus

Should I keep Firefox For Android installed if I also installed Firefox Focus? I don't see why I would need Firefox For Android if I'm using Focus. I appreciate any advise that is given. Thank you for making online browsing private. Thank you for your time.

I think, that the biggest advantage of Firefox for Android is the availability of Sync. If use Firefox on the desktop (or on other devices) Sync becomes very useful by saving your logins, password, bookmarks and open tabs, and then sync these between the devices. If you are not using any of this, then Focus might be enough for you.

No, Firefox for Android and Firefox Focus are fundamentally different – Firefox Focus is a WebView-based browser. However to simulate Firefox Focus' (arguably) main feature, you can set Firefox for Android to always open links in private browsing, so e.g. if you open a news article on your favourite social media site with Firefox, it will automatically start a private browsing session. And like in Firefox Focus, you can close all private pages with a tap on its notification.
