Cliqz Browser Release Notes 1.26.0 (66.0.2+1.35.1)

Cliqz Browser release 1.26.0 includes all changes of Firefox’s latest version 66.0.2. A “What’s new” page informs you about important new features and you can now easily check add-on permissions.

New features

  • Use your favorite add-ons in your Cliqz Browser! But keep in mind that extensions can also pose risks and slow down your browser. For more transparency, Cliqz now shows you all the permissions that installed add-ons require. This way you can see immediately which settings and data they are allowed to access. Learn more in our blog.
  • After a major update of the Cliqz Browser, a “What’s new” page opens automatically to inform you briefly about the most important changes. This will keep you up to date with the latest features and improvements. The page only appears when there are really significant feature updates.


  • Cliqz got updated to Firefox 66.0.2 which brings various improvements and fixes.
  • The dark browser theme is pleasant for your eyes – and it looks awesome! We added a possibility to easily switch between the light and dark theme in the Cliqz Tab settings. How this works is explained in a blog post.
  • We’ve updated the algorithm behind the “Time saved” statistic on Cliqz Tab. In addition to the time you save by using the built-in ad blocker, it now also takes into account the time you save by using Cliqz Quick Search.


  • In some cases an empty page was opened in the browser after a restart. This bug has been fixed.
  • We fixed the issue that the temperature unit preference for the Weather Smart Cliqz was not being saved.

Enjoy safe and fast browsing with Cliqz. If you have any questions or feedback, please let us know.
