Firefox 16 for Android receives support for ARMv6 in nightly build

by: LucianJuly 26, 2012

I’ve talked before about how I wish we’d all move on from the ARMv6 architecture, now that we’re already getting so close to the launch of the 64 bit ARMv8 architecture within the next 2 years. The sad reality is that most devices, especially the low-end ones, are still on this decade old architecture.

Hopefully, with the launch of Cortex A7 next year, which is built on ARMv7, we’ll finally start to forget about ARMv6, at least for new devices. Google has already started doing that with Chrome, for example, which only supports the ARMv7 architecture, even if you have Android 4.0 on your phone.

Until recently, Firefox for Android only [...]

Firefox 14: Faster, smarter, safer Web browser for Android

by: Paul NuñalJuly 13, 2012

Firefox had been enjoying its share of success in the past few years until Google Chrome came along and took some of the spotlight. But, this doesn’t mean that Firefox is down and out as there are still millions of loyal users using the world-famous browser.

When it comes to the mobile version, web browsers are not that different from their desktop counterparts. Some of the famous mobile web browsers are Dolphin Browser HD, Chrome for Android, and lot more. Firefox, on the other hand, is still sporting the beta tag and Mozilla hasn’t released the official stable version. Despite Firefox’s shortcomings, the latest version, Firefox 14, is finally making its way to the [...]

Firefox OS shall be better and cheaper than Android, says Telefónica

by: Will G.July 9, 2012

Mozilla, the company highly known for developing one of the most successful internet browsers of all time, is soon to rival the mobile OS market. As early as 2013, we will be able to play with some hot, new smart phones with a different operating system.

So different in fact, Telefónica says that the OS will be even “better and cheaper” than its great competitor, Android. Matthew Key, Head of Telefónica Digital pointed out some flaws with Google mobile OS, including the massive delay in software updates for each of the Android’s divisions, as well as the “fragmentation” of the Google Play Store.

Key also addressed the large demand for the Android OS, and the [...]

Chrome for Android is now out of beta and the official browser for Android 4.1

by: LucianJune 28, 2012

We’ve been expecting this day for at least two or three years, basically since Chrome came out and quickly started to become the default desktop browser for many of us, even when it was still in beta. Since then, we wanted to see Chrome for Android, but for some reason, Google kept avoiding the subject until this year.

This year we saw Chrome for Android Beta for the first time, and we were impressed by the browser’s speed and performance (you’d expect that from Chrome after all). But we also liked the app’s UI, which feels like swiping cards, something I’m sure Matias Duarte, Android’s Chief Designer, remembers well from his webOS [...]

“Screaming fast” browsing: new Firefox for Android claimed to be twice as fast as the stock browser

by: Bogdan PetrovanJune 26, 2012

Last week, Mozilla has teased us with a tweet that promised “something BIG” as coming this week for Firefox on Android. Some have expected a tablet optimized version of the mobile browser, but that proved to be just speculation.

That big thing coming is actually an update to Mozilla’s Firefox for Android mobile browser. According to the developers, the new Firefox brings a “screaming fast and personalized upgrade to mobile browsing that lets you take your Web experience everywhere you go”. Screaming fast – that’s something that Firefox mobile users will certainly appreciate, as the Android app was plagued by poor performance. Now, the new Firefox for Android should be [...]

Firefox fanatics: “something BIG is coming your way next week”. On Android

by: Bogdan PetrovanJune 23, 2012

Mozilla Firefox was for a long while the best alternative to Microsoft’s once-ubiquitous Internet Explorer. But those times have longed passed, and now Google’s Chrome is leading the assault against the IE fortress. Nevertheless, Firefox still has a huge user base and a dedicated community behind it, that has worked hard in the recent months to make up the ground that Firefox lost to Chrome.

These days, the fiercest battles are fought on the mobile front, where Chrome has gained a solid foothold as soon as it became available on ICS devices. In addition, Firefox has found some worthy opponents in mobile- only browsers, such as Dolphin, which is apparently, the highest [...]
