Firefox Android

If you’ve already gotten accustomed to the mobile version of Firefox, you will be pleased to know that there are some changes to its Android interface. Mozilla, the company behind the famous browser, released some photos of a futuristic Firefox for Android last Thursday. At first glance, changes are not that visible and easy to spot. But if you look closely, you’ll see that there are really some differences with the new interface. One of the changes you’ll notice on a standard window is that the tab management has been moved to the right side of the location bar. At…

The built-in browser might suit your needs but you’re really missing out on a lot if you’re not using one of the browsers we have listed below. Best of all, they’re all (mostly) free.

Just about two weeks ago, the team developing the Android tablet-optimized version of one of the world’s most popular Web browsers, Mozilla Firefox, gave a sneak peek into some of the features of the upcoming tablet version of the Firefox for Android app. Two weeks after, the team releases the first nightly builds of the browser that can now be installed by users for testing purposes. The app is only for the bold and not for the faint of heart, as it is still in the Nightly stage, which, according to development team member Ian Barlow, is a “very early…

There is no sweeter news for Honeycomb tablets these days than that of the newest version of the Mozilla Firefox browser, the tablet-optimized version of which is fast approaching a publicly usable stage. Developers of the Firefox version for Android tablets have given us a peek into their upcoming browser designed specifically for Android 3.x Honeycomb tablets. The tablet version of Firefox is a successor of its phone version. Developers say that both versions have the same scripting and extensions support that makes the browser appealing. The Firefox browser for Android tablets follows the ethos and spirit of minimalistic design,…

Firefox is one of the world’s most popular browsers, and even though Chrome may work better with Android, Firefox is still the king of browser for many people. This is why seeing the newest version of the Firefox Beta for Android can excite a lot of users. It’s out on the Market right now, and it brings a whole lot of UI changes, performance improvements, and other fixes and enhancements. Here’s what’s new for this version of Firefox for Android: Better start-up – Firefox is now optimized to start faster and is less of a memory drain Higher-quality image scaling…

In the never-ending Browser battle, speed is king. Browser A might be the prettiest, most secure one around — but if Browser B seems faster or more light weight, good ol’ Browser A is going to lose users in droves. This is especially true in the mobile world, where cellular network latency and the occasional peak-hour bandwidth bottleneck add precious seconds over the near-instant connectivity we’ve grown accustomed to. It makes sense, then, that Mozilla’s latest beta of Firefox 4 for Android is all about the speed. In at least one test, this newest build is clocking in at just…

For those that love Firefox, consider Fennec, the mobile alternative. Mozilla Fennec has been in development for Android over the last few months and we’re excited to announce that it is now in a public pre-alpha release. This means that it is buggy and broken, but in general should offer you the ability to browse the internet! The information comes to us via the official Fennec Ground Zero Blog. Here is an extract to give you an idea of what you can expect. This build should be considered “pre-alpha”, so there are some warnings and caveats: We’ve only really tested…

There is a preview available for the mobile version of Firefox, called Fennec, which is scheduled to arrive on Android sometime at the end of this year. The video shows us something that is clearly a little buggy, but the general principles are certainly there. I guess they would have to be otherwise ‘MartinSchirr’ would not have released this video. It would appear as though this particular version is only going to work for Android 2.0 or later, which does make sense given that by the time this application is ready, Android 9.1 is probably going to be out (ok,…

Earlier this month we tempted you with the news that Mozilla might release a full version of Firefox on Android, instead of a watered down version called Fennec. Indeed, back in January either version was said to be quite a few months away. The good folks over at TechRadar had a chat with Mozilla’s VP of Mobile, Jay Sullivan, who said that a mobile version (probably still Fennec) will be available for Android ‘late this year’. Please note the use of ‘late’ and NOT ‘later’. From this we can glean that Firefox on Android probably will not be available until…

The blog of Mozilla developer Vladimir Vukićević has some interesting juicy bits for all Android owner and enthusiasts. Vukićević admits that he hasn’t posted much recently on his blog, but it would seem that his updates are worth waiting for. In his update it becomes clear that he is testing the full version of Firefox on his Android emulator and not Fennec. That is not to say that there won’t be a Fennec on Android, but that there may be Firefox on devices which pack the right hardware to support it. You’ll note that this is the full Firefox interface,…
