It's a big, bit week for Mozilla. Despite the fact that Microsoft also
introduced Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 4 has also launched this week,
but the war of the desktop browsers is just the start. There's also a
growing battle on the mobile side, and with more and more browsers
creating new versions for mobile operating systems, consumers have more
options than ever. Mozilla is obviously taking Firefox 4 to the mobile
side, with Firefox 4 RC for Android and Maemo released today.
It's available in over ten languages, and can be downloaded today. This
release offers faster scrolling, better responsiveness with Firefox Sync
and improves the overall user experience of Firefox. Firefox 4 for
Android and Maemo brings the performance and customization of Firefox to
mobile devices with features like Firefox Sync, Awesome Screen, tabbed
browsing and Firefox Add-ons, to create a personalized and effortless
mobile browsing experience.
Mozilla's working closely with Add-On developers to make sure things
remain compatible, but we suspect some quirks will happen for early
adopters. Have you given it a download on your own phone? Let us know
how it works out for you!
