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. By taking a 22.67 percent share of the pie in February 2012, it bested Opera’s 21.7 percent by a small margin.

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 [...]

Tab-optimized Mozilla Firefox for Android Ready for Testing; Opera Mobile Web Browser Officially Supports Honeycomb

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 [...]

A Sneak Peek into the Firefox Browser Optimized for Honeycomb Tablets

by: Alvin YbañezAugust 31, 2011

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, which Honeycomb is [...]

by: Aerol BibatJuly 10, 2011

Latest Firefox 4 Beta 3X Up to Faster Than Default Browser

by: Darcy LaCouveeFebruary 4, 2011

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 over 3X faster than the built-in browser.

Here’s the rundown:

Pre-apha version of Mozilla Firefox (Fennec) now available for Android

by: James TromansApril 28, 2010

Mozilla Fennec

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 this on the Motorola Droid and the [...]

Video: Fennec for Android

by: James TromansMarch 31, 2010

Fennec

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, maybe not). Anyway, if your curious check out the Youtube video [...]
