Firefox Beta for Android

Firefox Beta for Android

Mozilla just launched the Firefox 4 Beta 1 for Android and Maemo devices. Thanks to XDA member dadyal for pointing this out to us. The app codenamed “Fennec” is now available for download from Mozilla’s site. Finally, as the sites slogan states, you can “Take your Firefox anywhere”. The browser features:

  • Browser based Add-ons
  • Personalized Start Page
  • the “Awesome Screen” – Access to history/bookmarks/favorite search engine
  • Simple and Clean UI and Touch Friendly
  • Highly responsive
  • Pinch to Zoom (Android)
  • Tabbed browsing
  • Location Aware Browsing
  • Share Pages via Social Networking sites
  • Password Manager

And much much more! This browser is sure shaping up to be a grand mobile browsing experience for your Android Smartphone. After personally testing this on my Motorola Droid, I found it to be very responsive and will now be using it as my main browser. To go give it a try, checkout the download page, release notes, supported devices, and the discussion thread.
