    I am a Website developer and SEO professional. I use Chrome, Chromium, Firefox and Samsung Internet Browser (SIB) is more popular and widely used than Firefox or Safari, and SIB works on all brands of Android phones.

    I use and love Click and Clean in Chrome and Chromium, but I prefer using Firefox the most, followed by SIB.

    Do you, or will you, have a version of Click and Clean for Firefox and/or SIB?

    Also, do you have a donation page where I can contribute to you financially?
