First Firefox OS smartphones to be released in early 2013, manufactured by ZTE & Alcatel

by: Mike AndriciJuly 2, 2012

Four months ago at MWC 2012, Mozilla has first unveiled its plans to create a HTML 5-based, open source mobile operating system, although back then there was no way of knowing how far away the project was from reaching the consumer market. Thankfully, Mozilla Foundation has announced today that the first smartphones to use the new Firefox OS will be made by ZTE and Alcatel, and will ship in early 2013 featuring Qualcomm Snapdragon processors.

Mozilla has also announced that the Firefox OS will be backed up by a number of telecom companies such as Deutsche Telekom, Sprint, Smart, Telecom Italia, Telenor and Etisalat. Surprised by the momentum Firefox OS appears to be gaining? [...]

“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 [...]

Microsoft playing dirty again, plans to ban Firefox on ARM-based Windows 8 PCs and tablets

by: AdrianMay 10, 2012

Although for many it might be a model worth following, Microsoft has a longstanding tradition of not only discouraging competition, but trying to eliminate it by any means possible. That includes dirty, unorthodox, and sometimes even illegal moves through which they’ve managed to monopolize the desktop operating system market, and, for a long while back in the ‘90s and early ‘2000s, the browser market.

Internet Explorer was practically the only browsing solution users could possibly “choose” until 2004, when Mozilla launched Firefox. Not only was the browsing market situation unhealthy and unnatural, but as history has proven, it also delayed some technological [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
