 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".
