“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 [...]

Firefox 14 beta for Android brings new UI, improved performance, and Flash support

by: Bams SadewoMay 17, 2012

Google Chrome may have taken over Mozilla Firefox’s place to become the world’s second most widely used browser, but Firefox, now on the third place, still has approximately 25% of worldwide usage share. With such a huge user base, you’d think that PC Firefox users would love nothing more but to continue to enjoy the Firefox experience on their Android device.

This, unfortunately, hasn’t been the case, as Firefox for Android hasn’t really lived up to its name, mostly due to its sluggishness – at least in the earlier versions. While performance has improved with each new iteration of the app, what can we expect from the latest version of the mobile [...]

by: Bams SadewoMarch 3, 2012
Another week, another fine set of statistics released by the folks at StatCounter. According to the Internet analytics firm, as reported by Tom’s Guide, the Android browser has finally taken the lead over its competitors and is now the top mobile browser in the world.

Android Authority Asks: What is your Favorite Android Browser?

by: AlexanderFebruary 8, 2012

Chrome Beta

Tonight we are asking, what is your favorite Android browser? Yesterday afternoon the long awaited release of the Google Chrome browser for Android finally released. But the sad thing is, it’s only compatible with ICS, so I have not been able to play around with it.

Most people I know use Dolphin for its’ speed and ability to turn off flash when it’s not needed, because we know flash can slow down your device as well as eat up some precious battery. I actually still use the stock browser on my Droid Bionic, there isn’t a whole lot of stuff I use the browser for since every site I go to has an app [...]

Android Firefox Gets Revamped

by: Christine TorralbaDecember 17, 2011

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 same time, the location bar has been upgraded to rounded corners. A lot of the bigger redesigns of [...]

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 14, 2011

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 testing stage for awesome new features.” The Nightly stage is somewhat similar to the pre-alpha [...]
