Many who-dont-know-Tor who-isnt-a-geek users on the internet blindly trust Chrome Android on their daily browsing.

Firefox Klar provide better privacy than Chrome. Unlike Firefox, it doesn't send telemetary(checkbox is off by default[1]) and also doesn't download filter lists from the internet(included in APK).
Also, Firefox Klar is designed "incognito-by-default". User can clear the result/close the browser by just tap the menu.

We should rebrand Orfox with Klar codes to provide better UX to TBB users.

[1] So we should delete the telemetry code and hide the button.
Do not trust Firefox FOCUS. FOCUS send them by default and also send device info. Klar doesn't.

P.S. Component --- please add "Applications/Orfox".

Orfox is based on the ESR of Firefox for Android if I recall. That said there are some proposals to add Orbot compatibility and prevent leaks with Firefox Klar in one of their github issues.
