It's probably not what you're thinking.

There has never been a period in human history where the exploration of one’s sexuality has been safer, easier, or more open than right now. The widespread proliferation of pornography means you’ll never have to go stumbling through the woods hoping to find a discarded Playboy. You just simply need to tap your fingers across a few keys to unlock a world of bawdy pleasures. 

But what browser provides the best experience for your internet porn viewing? Wonder no more: The answer is Firefox.

Yes, Firefox, that little customizable browser you probably used for awhile before switching over to Chrome like the rest of the internet. Why Firefox? It comes down to two basic reasons: security and features.

Hide in plain sight

From a security standpoint unless you live completely alone and never have anyone over that uses your computer it makes sense to be cautious with your porn browsing. Nothing ruins a holiday dinner like your Mother looking up a recipe for a moist turkey on your laptop only to discover you’ve got other kinds of basting on the brain. Think of Firefox as your digital mistress; loyal and reliable, but hidden away on the eyes of your everyday life.

Sure, you can use incognito mode on Chrome, but what if you want to save a favorite video or erotic story? Keeping a secondary browser just for your porn habits allows you to create a safe space for your fantasies, free from prying eyes you might not want to know your habits. Almost everyone has a few extra browsers on their computer they forgot to uninstall. Use this to your advantage, and keep Chrome in your taskbar for everyday use and Firefox on hand for when you’re feeling frisky. Simple and effective. 

It's all about you

That’s not to say Firefox isn’t a great browser on its own. In fact its greatest selling point for pornography is probably why it’s not popular with every day users. We’re speaking of course of its incredible customizability. While your average web users just wants something simple that works, Firefox allows you to tailor your experience to your needs. This comes in handy when checking out sites porn site with their myriad pop-up ads and cookies.

The first thing you need to do is go to the Options tab in Firefox and then hit Content > Advanced so you can control web page scripts. Disable context menus and the ability for web pages to resize or raise windows. Then download and install NoScript security suite. NoScript will only allow active content like javascript to run from trusted sites, protecting you from clickjacking attacks and other unscrupulous scams if you venture outside of your standard Tube style sites.

Once you’ve got your basic protection in place it’s time to get surfing. Many modern adult sites offer options for downloading videos, but they may not have them in the format you’re looking for. If you’re looking to save a memory we suggest the Video DownloadHelper and Flashgot extensions. Each of these extensions make it easy to quickly find the download link on sites that don’t make it obvious, allowing you to build your own private collection for offline browsing.

If erotica is your thing try out the Paper addon from Instapaper. This allows you to quickly save pages of text directly to the Instapaper app on your phone or collection on their site. It’s a good way to quickly index your favorite stories, if that’s your kink.

You can't go wrong

Firefox is definitely your best bet when you're feeling naughty, but ultimately when it comes to browsing pornography online there isn’t a bad browser to use. Chrome, Opera, and even Safari can get the job done quickly and efficiently, and if you aren’t worried about anyone finding out your kinks there’s no reason to use a secondary browser. But there is an element of romance to secrecy, and keeping your fantasies to yourself can help keep those fantasies special.

If you’re the sort of person who has ever asked “what is the best browser for porn?” the answer is obviously Firefox. With its cutting edge security customization and ocean of add-on content you’ll be able to build the porn browser of your wildest dreams. And thanks to Chrome becoming the most used browser in the world, no one will ever think to open up your Firefox when they’re using your computer. From an actual security and passive security standpoint when it comes to getting yourself off, get foxy with Firefox.
