Learn how to warp images like never before with the improved and enhanced Warp command in Photoshop 2023!
Written by Steve Patterson.
One of the best new features in Photoshop CC 2023 is the enhanced Warp command. While Photoshop has allowed us to warp images for years, the controls and options for the Warp command have, up till now, been pretty limited. But as of CC 2023, that’s no longer the case. Adobe has added powerful new enhancements to Warp, including new Warp grid presets, new custom grid sizes, and the ability to add our own grid lines and control points wherever we need them. We can now select and warp multiple points within the image at the same time, and we can even scale and rotate different areas of the image independently!
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how every new feature of the Warp command works. To use these features, you’ll need Photoshop 2023 or newer. So before you continue, make sure that your copy of Photoshop CC is up to date.
Let’s get started!The document setup
For this tutorial, I’ve created a simple document with a man dancing in front of a gradient background. The original dancer photo was downloaded from Adobe Stock, and I used the new Object Selection Tool in Photoshop CC 2023 to remove him from the rest of the image. The gradient behind him is one of many new gradients included with Photoshop CC 2023:
The original document. Dancer from Adobe Stock.
In the Layers panel, the man appears on his own layer (“Layer 1”) above a Gradient Fill layer. Make sure you have the correct layer selected before choosing the Warp command:
Selecting the layer that will be warped.

Also before choosing the Warp command, I highly recommend that you first convert your layer into a smart object. The reason is that if you warp a normal pixel layer, the changes you make become permanent. But if you warp a smart object, the warp remains editable. You can warp a smart object further if you need to, or undo the warp and return to the original shape of the image at any time, without any loss in quality.
Opening the Layers panel menu.
And choose Convert to Smart Object:
Selecting the “Convert to Smart Object” command.
An icon appears in the lower right of the layer’s preview thumbnail, telling us that the layer is now safely inside a smart object and we’re ready to warp the contents:
The smart object icon.

There are a couple of ways to access the Warp command in Photoshop. One is by going up to the Edit menu in the Menu Bar, choosing Transform, and then choosing Warp. This lets you access the Warp command directly:
And the other way is through Photoshop’s Free Transform command. Open Free Transform by going up to the Edit menu and choosing Free Transform, or by pressing Ctrl+T (Win) / Command+T (Mac) on your keyboard:The default Warp controls in Photoshop CC 2023
When you choose the Warp command, Photoshop places the default Warp box around the layer’s contents:
The default Warp box.How to use the default Warp controls
You can drag the control point in each corner of the box:How to undo a warp
In Photoshop CC 2023, the Warp command (and the Free Transform command) now gives us multiple undos. To undo your last step, go up to the Edit menu and choose Undo, or press Ctrl+Z (Win) / Command+Z (Mac) on your keyboard. And to undo multiple steps, press Ctrl+Z (Win) / Command+Z (Mac) repeatedly:Gaining more control with the Warp grid presets
And choose either a 3×3, 4×4 or 5×5 grid:
Choosing one of three preset Warp grid sizes.
The grid appears in front of the image. Here I’ve chosen the 3×3 grid. And notice that instead of seeing control points only in the corners, we now have a control point at each spot where the horizontal and vertical grid lines intersect. So just by adding a 3×3 grid preset, we’ve gone from four control points to sixteen points:
The 3×3 warp grid preset.Dragging a control point Dragging a control handle
You can also drag any of the control handles that extend out from the selected point. Here I’m dragging the right control handle further to the right to warp the shape of the man’s upper body:

So far we’ve looked at how to warp the image using one control point at a time. But in Photoshop CC 2023, we can also warp multiple control points at once.Selecting multiple control points
Here I’m selecting the four points in the center of the grid. A box appears around the points you’ve selected:

If the Warp grid presets still do not give you enough control, you can create your own custom Warp grid.
In the Options Bar, set the Grid option to Custom:
Setting Grid to “Custom”.
Creating a custom Warp grid.
The new custom grid appears in front of the image, again with an independent control point at each spot where the grid lines intersect. Just keep in mind that changing the grid size after warping the image will discard any changes you’ve made:

Finally, for precise control over the warp, Photoshop CC 2023 now lets you add your own grid lines wherever you need them!
In the Options Bar, you’ll find a new option called Split, with three icons beside it that each gives you a different way to “split” the grid. Starting from the left, Split Crosswise adds both a vertical and horizontal grid line, Split Vertical adds a vertical grid line, and Split Horizontal adds, you guessed it, a horizontal grid line:
The Crosswise (left), Vertical (middle) and Horizontal (right) Split options.

How to Warp a Gradient in Text with Photoshop
Photoshop’s Warp Text command is great for bending text into different shapes. But when you warp text that’s filled with a gradient, the gradient ignores the warp. So here’s the trick to warping text and the gradient together in Photoshop!
Written by Steve Patterson.
Have you ever filled text with a gradient in Photoshop, and then applied a warp to your text, only to find that the gradient did not warp along with the letters? In fact, no matter what shape we bend and warp text into, the gradient inside the text does not warp at all.
So how can we warp the gradient so that it matches the angles and direction of the text? In this tutorial, I’ll show you a simple trick that lets you warp your text and the gradient together!
Here’s an example of the result we’ll achieve. Notice how the angle of the gradient bends along the word to match the warping of the text:
The text and gradient warping together in Photoshop.
Let’s get started!
Download this tutorial as a print-ready PDF!Which version of Photoshop do I need?
I’m using Photoshop 2023 but any recent version will work. You can get the latest Photoshop version here.Step 1: Add your text
Start by adding your text to the document. I’ve gone ahead and added some text which is currently filled with white. So to make the text visible against the white background, I’ve added a couple of layer effects.
There is a thin black stroke around the letters, and a drop shadow behind them:
Adding some text to the document, with a stroke and a drop shadow applied.
In the Layers panel, the Stroke and Drop Shadow effects are listed below the type layer:
Any effects applied to a layer are listed below it.Step 2: Add a Gradient Overlay to the text
And choose Gradient Overlay:
Choosing Gradient Overlay from the list of layer effects.Choosing a gradient
And instantly, the gradient fills the text:
Photoshop fills the text with the selected gradient.
Related: The New Gradients and Gradients Panel in PhotoshopSetting the gradient’s Angle and Style
I’ll leave the Angle of the gradient set to 90 degrees. But I’ll change the Style from Linear to Reflected:
Leaving the Angle at 90 degrees but changing the Style to Reflected.
Changing the style to Reflected moves the bright orange part of the gradient to the middle of the letters, making it easier to see that the gradient is running through the text in a straight line:
The result after changing the gradient’s style to Reflected.Closing the Layer Style dialog box
And here is the text and gradient so far:
The text filled with an orange-to-red reflected gradient.
Back in the Layers panel, the Gradient Overlay appears below the type layer, along with the Stroke and Drop Shadow effects I added earlier.
The Layers panel showing the Gradient Overlay added as an effect.How Photoshop applies layer effects
Notice that the gradient overlay appeared between the stroke and the drop shadow. That’s because Photoshop applies layer effects in a specific order. A drop shadow is always at the bottom. Then the gradient overlay is applied on top of the drop shadow, and then the stroke is applied above the gradient:
Layer effects have a specific order in which they are applied.What normally happens when we warp the text
Now that we’ve added our layer effects, including the gradient, let’s see what happens when we warp the text. One way to do that is to go up to the Type menu in the Menu Bar and choose the Warp Text command:
Choosing the Warp Text command from the Type menu.
Or if you have the Type Tool selected in the toolbar:
Selecting the Type Tool from the toolbar.Choosing a warp style preset
And choose one of the preset styles from the list. I’ll choose Arch:
Choosing Arch from the Style menu.Adjusting the Bend amount
I’ll leave the direction of the arch set to Horizontal so the text is warping upward, but I’ll lower the Bend value from 50 percent down to 30 percent:
Lowering the Bend amount to 30 percent.The gradient does not bend with the text
The gradient did not bend with the text.
Then in the Layer Style dialog box, I’ll lower the Scale of the gradient from 100 percent down to 10 percent:
Lowering the gradient’s Scale value to 10 percent.
And now we can clearly see that the gradient has no warping applied to it at all:
A better view of the problem.Undoing the Warp Text command
Then I’ll undo the text warp by going up to the Edit menu in the Menu Bar and choosing Undo Warp Text:Step 3: Convert the type layer into a smart object
So how can we make the gradient follow the same bend and warp as the text? Here’s the trick. All we need to do is convert our type layer in the Layers panel into a smart object.
But first, make sure you have applied your Gradient Overlay, along with any other layer effects, to the text before converting it to a smart object. We need the effects to be applied directly to the type layer:
Add the Gradient Overlay to the text before converting it to a smart object.
Then make sure the type layer is selected:
And choose Convert to Smart Object:
Choosing the Convert to Smart Object command.
It won’t look like anything has happened to the text itself. But in the Layers panel, we see that Photoshop has placed the type layer and its layer effects into a smart object, indicated by the smart object icon in the lower right of the thumbnail:
The icon in the thumbnail indicates a smart object.Step 4: Choose the Warp command
Now since we are no longer working with the text directly, the Warp Text icon in the Options Bar is grayed out:
The Warp Text icon is no longer available.
And so is the Warp Text command under the Type menu:
The Warp Text command is also not available.
But we can still access the same warp options by going up to the Edit menu, choosing Transform, and then Warp:Choose a warp style preset
Photoshop will place a warp grid around the text:
A warp grid appears around the text.
And all of the warp styles we saw earlier in the Warp Text dialog box can be accessed from the Warp option in the Options Bar. By default, Warp is set to Custom:
The Warp option in the Options Bar.
Choosing Arch from the Warp options.
And right away, because we converted the type layer into a smart object, we see the gradient now bending with the text:
The gradient and the text now bend together thanks to the smart object.Using the Bend handle
If I wanted to adjust the amount of bend like I did earlier in the Warp Text dialog box, I could enter a specific value into the Bend option in the Options Bar:
The Bend option is now found in the Options Bar.
But a nice feature of the Warp command is that it includes a Bend handle that you can simply drag up and down to adjust it. Here I’m dragging the handle downward to reduce the bend amount:
Drag the Bend handle to adjust the amount of bend manually.Choosing a different warp style
You can try other styles from the Warp option, like Flag:
Switching from the Arch preset shape to Flag.
And no matter which style you choose, the gradient and the text always warp together, again thanks to the fact that we converted the text into a smart object:
The result after switching the Warp style from Arch to Flag.Step 6: Commit the warp
And there we have it! Be sure to check out my other Text Effects tutorials for more creative ideas. And don’t forget, all of my tutorials are available to download as PDFs!
The Rectangular Marquee Tool is located at the top of the Tools panel.
If you’re using Photoshop CS4 as I am here, or Photoshop CS3, and you have your Tools panel set to a single column layout, the Rectangular Marquee Tool will be the second icon from the top:
The Tools panel in Photoshop CS3 and higher can be displayed in either a single or double column layout.Drawing Rectangular Selections
Here’s a photo of some wooden blocks:
Colorful wooden blocks.
See that large red block in the top row? Let’s say I wanted to change its color, a very simple thing to do. Now, if this was Star Trek, I could simply say “Computer, select red block, top row”, followed by “Change color to purple”, or whatever color we wanted. Unfortunately, reality hasn’t quite caught up to science fiction just yet, but that doesn’t mean life in this day and age is unbearably difficult. Far from it! Photoshop may not be able to identify the wooden block, since all it sees are pixels, but not only can you and I see it, we can see that it’s very clearly in the shape of a rectangle, which means that the task of selecting it is perfectly suited for the Rectangular Marquee Tool.
If you find that you didn’t begin your selection in exactly the right spot, there’s no need to start over. Just hold down your spacebar, then drag your mouse to move the selection where you need it. When you’re done, release your spacebar and continue dragging out the selection.
To complete the selection, all I need to do is release my mouse button. The wooden block is now selected (or at least, the pixels that make up what we see as the block are selected), and a selection outline appears around the block in the document window. Any edits I make at this point will affect that specific block and no others:
Selection outlines appear as a series of moving dashed lines, also known as “marching ants”.
To change the color of the block, we’ll use Photoshop’s Hue/Saturation image adjustment. To select it, I’ll go up to the Image menu at the top of the screen where I’ll choose Adjustments and then Hue/Saturation:
The Hue/Saturation image adjustment is great for changing the color of objects in an image.
This brings up the Hue/Saturation dialog box. I think I’ll change the block’s color to orange. I know I said purple earlier, but now that I’ve had a few more minutes to think about it, a nice bright orange would probably be a better choice. Changing the color is as easy as dragging the Hue slider left or right until you find the color you want. I’m going to drag mine towards the right to a value of 28 to select orange. Then, to bump up the color saturation a bit, I’ll drag the Saturation slider towards the right to a value of around +25:
Change an object’s color by dragging the Hue slider. Increase or decrease color saturation with the Saturation slider.
Remove selections by choosing Deselect from under the Select menu.
A faster way to remove a selection is with the keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+D (Win) / Command+D (Mac), but either way will work. With the selection outline now gone, we can see that only the area that was inside the rectangular selection outline was affected by the Hue/Saturation adjustment. The formerly red block is now an orange block, while the rest of the photo remains unchanged:
Only the area inside the rectangular selection was affected by the Hue/Saturation adjustment.
Selecting the wooden block with the Rectangular Marquee Tool was easy, but what if the object we need to select is perfectly square? We’ll look at that next!Drawing Square Selections
So far, we’ve seen how easy it is to select a rectangular-shaped object or area in a photo with the Rectangular Marquee Tool, but what if you need to select something that’s perfectly square? Is there a way to force the selection outline into a square? Not only is there a way to do it, there’s actually two ways to do it, although one of them is much faster than the other.
Here’s a photo I have open in Photoshop of some rather grungy looking tiles:
Dirty, grungy looking tiles.
Let’s say I want to select the tile in the center so I can use it as an interesting background or texture for an effect. Since the tile is obviously square, we’ll want to constrain our selection to a square. First, we’ll look at the long way to go about it.
Any time the Rectangular Marquee Tool is selected, the Options Bar at the top of the screen will display options specifically for this tool. One of the options is called Style, and by default, it’s set to Normal, which means we’re free to drag out any size selection we need with any dimensions. To force the selection into a square, first change the Style option to Fixed Ratio, then enter a value of 1 for both the Width and Height options (1 is the default value for the Width and Height so you may not need to change it):
Change the Style option to Fixed Ratio, then set both the Width and Height to 1.
No matter how large of a selection I draw, it remains a perfect square.
Once again, there’s no need to start over if you didn’t begin your selection in the right spot. Just hold down your spacebar, drag the selection to its new location, then release the spacebar and continue dragging out the rest of the selection.
To complete the selection, I’ll release my mouse button, and we can see in the document window that the square tile in the center is now selected, ready for whatever I decide to do with it:
The center tile is now selected.
The only problem with using this method to force the selection into a square is that the options in the Options Bar are “sticky”, meaning they don’t automatically switch back to their default settings the next time you go to use the tool. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve tried to drag out a rectangular selection only to have the selection constrained to a square or some other aspect ratio because I forgot to change the Style option back to Normal. So, before we go any further, let’s change it back to Normal right now:
Make sure to set the Style option back to Normal since Photoshop won’t do it for you.
Next, we’ll learn how to drag a rectangular or square selection out from its center!Drawing Selections From The Center
Up to this point, we’ve been starting all of our rectangular or square selections from the top left corner of whatever it was that we were selecting, and in most cases that works just fine. But there’s no rule that says you must always start in the top left corner. In fact, Photoshop gives us a simple keyboard shortcut that allows us to drag selections out from their center rather than from a corner.
Holding down Alt (Win) / Option (Mac) allows us to drag selections out from the center.Quickly Remove A Selection
The Quick Selection Tool
The Quick Selection Tool is the go to tool for many looking to quickly cut out an image in Photoshop. As it says in the name, it’s the ‘quickest’ way to make a flawless selection. Although it is so widely used, there is a very undeniable draw back to this tool. The auto selection often leaves a jagged selection edge up close and drastically reduces the flawlessness provided by things like the pen tool.
Now I’m not trying to convince you to never use the quick selection tool again. It’s a fantastic and easy tool that has countless uses throughout Photoshop. Since it makes such a mess of our edges, we have to know what steps to take towards reversing those effects! Luckily for us, there is a hidden tool tucked away in Photoshop that can solve all our problems.Video Tutorial Refine Edge Tool
The refine edge tool allows you to adjust and perfect any of your selections through the use of a few intuitive sliders. The reason this tool works to well paired with the quick selection tool is that it simply adjusts and smooths the edges with just a few sliders. Although the refine edge tool can do much more than simply smooth an edge, let’s stick in the realm of its usefulness when paired with quick selection tool.Global Refinements
In the refine edge tool, the best sliders for the job, lie in your global refinements tab. In this tab you have 4 different options: Smooth, Feather, Contrast and Shift Edge.
Smooth: Manipulates and smooths jagged edges. Good in small amounts, use too much and you will find parts outside of your selection begin to seep in!
Feather: Just as a feather on the brush tool, it softens the edge of your selection. This can be useful to blend out any imperfections left around your edges.
Contrast: Just as the name suggests, it adds contrast to the selections edge. When paired with the feather slider, it creates a clean and sharp edge.
Shift Edge: Shift edge allows you to move the edge of your selection. A great feature to reduce fringing or add a little extra to your selection in a pinch!
By using these four sliders together you can drastically improve the quality of your selections!Refine Edge Tool Export Settings
Whenever I use the refine edge tool, I always set my “export to” tab to “NEW LAYER WITH LAYER MASK”. This way all the changes made are put onto a new layer that I can easily compare to my previous and continue working non destructively.Final Thoughts
There is no right or wrong when adjusting the settings we talked about above. Every image will require something a little bit different. Luckily for you there are only four sliders you need to worry about.
On the top of the refine edge tool adjustment panel there is a view option. I like to keep mine set to “onion skin”. Although a gross sounding name, this view mode allows us to easily see what our current selection is and what lies outside of it. This is key to help us be certain we have selected everything we need from a particular image.
Happy Editing! 🙂
In this post, we will explain how to reduce noise in images to fix grainy images using Photoshop. You will also learn how to avoid getting noise in photos. Image noise is any discoloration of an image that degrades its quality. We consider any annoying sound as noise because it takes away from peace and beauty. Every noise is a sound but not every sound is noise. The same is true for digital noise, digital noise is colors that are out of place and takes away from the beauty of the image. Digital noise in images is colors that make the image look pixelated and sometimes slightly blurry.How to reduce Noise in Images using Photoshop
Image noise can be caused by using cheap equipment to take photographs. Image noise can be caused by using high ISO while taking photographs in low light. ISO refers to the camera’s sensitivity to light. The higher the ISO the brighter the photo will appear. The image may have noise because the camera may have a slow shutter speed. Noise can be caused by underexposure. Noise can also be caused by a scanning sensor. Noise can be even more obvious when the image is sharpened, that is why it is best to reduce the noise before enhancing the image. While some noise is good in an image, having too much noise can make the image have poor quality. Once the image has noise, it cannot be removed without damaging the image, however, you can reduce image noise with Photoshop.
Types of Noise
Reduce Noise – Basic Mode
Reduce Noise – Advanced Mode
Save1] Types of Noise
There are two types of noise that an image may have, Color Noise and Luminance Noise. Color noise appears as spots of red, green, and blue color where they are not supposed to be. Luminance (grayscale) noise, makes an image look grainy or patchy. Luminance noise affects the brightness of pixels, but it doesn’t harm their original colors. There is one more thing that can affect your image that Photoshop can help to correct, and that is JPEG Artifacts. JPEG Artifacts are blocky distortions or halos in the image caused by saving with a low JPEG quality setting. JPEG is a compression format, so it compresses your image when you use it. Each time you save a JPEG image it loses some of its quality. Your device may save your file as a JPEG, or you created the JPEG when you saved the file. Since JPEG is a smaller file, it is used in most cases to save images, however JPEG damages and degrades the file.2] Preparing the Image
This is the original image. Zoom in and out and observe. You don’t have to zoom in a lot to start seeing distortions in the image.
I observed some JPEG Artifacts especially around the edges, closer to the skin. can you see the boxy colors?3] Reduce Noise – Basic Mode
To begin working on the image you need to duplicate the image and make changes to the duplicate so that the original is protected.
With the copy layer selected go to Filter then Noise then Reduce Noise. The Reduce Noise filter dialogue box will come up for you to make adjustments. Stay in the basic mode, which is the first mode that the Reduce Filter will be on. Note there will be no hard and fast rule in the value that will be needed for each. This means you will need to move the sliders slowly and observe the changes to your image. The image used in this article will have a different level of noise and JPEG artifact present in it.
Here are the different parts of the Reduce Noise filter dialogue box and what they are for:
There is the Ok and the Cancel button so that you can confirm or cancel changes.
While still in the Reduce Filter dialogue, zoom the previewed image to 100% so that you can see the noise. The Reduce Noise filter will be in the Basic Mode.
These are the controls that are available in the Basic Mode.
Go to each of the sliders and adjusts them and watch the changes in the image.
Preserve Details – The Preserve Details slider is used to bring back as many of the details of the image. The Strength slider would have removed some of the image’s original details so the Preserve details would help to bring back as many of the details as possible. Remember that it will not be possible to get a perfect image, however, try to make the image as realistic as possible.
Reduce Color Noise – This Slider removes color noise in the image. Use this slider if you notice color noise in your image.
Remove JPEG Artifacts – You may notice in your image that there are JPEG Artifacts. JPEG Artifacts are blocky distortions or halos in the image caused by saving with a low JPEG quality setting. Check the Remove JPEG Artifact option and see the blotches disappear.4] Reduce Noise – Advanced Mode
To begin working on the image you need to duplicate the image and make changes to the duplicate so that the original is protected.
With the copy layer selected go to Filter then Noise then Reduce Noise. The Reduce Noise filter dialogue box will come up for you to make adjustments.
For this method, go over to the Advanced mode instead of staying on the Basic mode.
When you are finished processing press OK to confirm and keep changes made to the image.
This is the image after the process of Noise Reduction has been completed and has been saved.5] Save
After all that hard work making that image look more pleasing to the eye, it would be very counter-productive to not save that image properly. The first thing to do is to save the finished image as a Photoshop PSD so that you preserve the editing capabilities and the quality. Save the image as TIFF or PNG so that more of the details are stored. Saving as a PGN also have the added benefit of saving without the background. Remember that saving as JPEG will compress it and some quality will be lost. However for storage and web use, you may have to save it as a JPEG, just be sure to use the highest JPEG setting to save the Image. Note that saving as a JPEG should be left to the final save because each time a JPEG is saved it degrades more and more.

Use cameras with full-frame sensors.Why are my photos so noisy?
The graininess you’re referring to is called noise, and it’s caused by having your ISO set too high. While it seems nice that your camera offers you a high ISO, it doesn’t mean it can be used at the highest setting and produce a quality image. ISO refers to the camera’s sensitivity to light. The Higher the ISO number, the more sensitive. This comes with a drawback because the more sensitive the more chance for there to be noise. Your photos can be noisy when you turn the ISO high and shoot in low light.
Photos can also be noisy when you use cheap equipment to take photos. Using the correct equipment and proper lighting can greatly reduce noise in your photos. However. If all that is not available, Photoshop can help to reduce noise in your photos.
Firefox today announced a privacy-first browsing experience that has anti-tracking settings turned on by default. The announcement voiced strong opposition to the security practices of big tech companies like Chrome and Facebook.
Mozilla accused them of hiding privacy settings in order to discourage their use. Firefox specifically called out Chrome’s Incognito Mode for providing an illusion of privacy.Advanced Privacy by Default
Firefox announced that new users of Firefox will receive the privacy first version of Firefox. It will be made generally available to existing users in the coming months.
There is a way for existing users to turn the functionality on, but Mozilla cautioned that they are still testing to make sure that browsing functionality is not negatively affected by the anti-tracking functionality. Presumably, blocking the wrong cookies might cause some sites to no longer function, causing a negative user experience.Firefox Targets Facebook Shadow Profiles
Many people are unaware that Facebook tracks users not just on chúng tôi but all across the web. Facebook tracks users across third party websites and is able to create what Firefox refers to as shadow profiles.
Firefox announced they are releasing an improved Facebook Container browser add-on that blocks Facebook tracking.
“…when you are on a news site and reading an article, you often see Facebook Like and Share buttons. Our Facebook Container will block these buttons and all connections to Facebook’s servers, so that Facebook isn’t able to track your visits to these sites. This blocking makes it much harder for Facebook to build shadow profiles of non-Facebook users.”Firefox Charges Chrome with a False Sense of Privacy
Mozilla, the creators of Firefox, charged tech companies with misleading users about security. They said that making users opt in to enhanced privacy is a way to mislead users into remaining in a non-secure state.
“It seems that each week a new tech company decides to decree that privacy is a human right. They tout how their products provide people with “choices” to change the settings if they wish to opt into a greater level of privacy protection to exemplify how they are putting privacy first.
… do people really want more complex settings to understand and fiddle with or do they simply want products that respect their privacy and align with their expectations to begin with?”Firefox Accuses Tech Companies of Barriers to Privacy
“The general argument from tech companies is that consumers can always decide to dive into their browser settings and modify the defaults. The reality is that most people will never do that.”Firefox Says Chrome Incognito Offers Illusion of Security
Firefox pointed a finger at Chrome Incognito Mode as a way to continue tracking users while providing the illusion of security.
“The feature might keep your spouse from knowing what you’re thinking about getting them for your anniversary by erasing your history, but it does not prevent third-party tracking.”Will Firefox Disrupt Advertising Ecosystem?
Google disrupted entire industries by giving users what they wanted. For example:
Google disrupted the search industry by initially offering an ad-free experience search experience.
Google disrupted the analytics industry by giving away free analytics services.
Google disrupted the email industry by offering gigabytes of free storage while others offered megabytes.
Firefox is throwing that strategy back at Google by giving users what they want, which is enhanced privacy turned on by default.
On the other hand, Firefox may not be able to do this alone. The effect of the new Firefox may be in stimulating others to join in respecting user demands for privacy.
DuckDuckGo, the privacy first search engine is gaining popularity. It even offers a popular Chrome browser extension (downloaded by over 2 million users) that blocks tracking cookies.
