Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo gets faster with new beta

Mozilla's latest beta version of Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo is a lot faster than previous releases, blowing away older versions in speed tests. According to the Mozilla blog, Firefox is now 3x faster than Google's stock Android browser when it comes to JavaScript, even if they did use their own Kraken speed test to prove it. Brad Linder at Mobiputing says the numbers on the SunSpider JavaScr...

Firefox for Android now supports Personas themes

Mozilla has released the Personas add-on for Firefox Mobile, allowing you to install any of the hundreds of lightweight themes available at getpersonas.com. While there's not much chrome to theme on Firefox Mobile, there will no doubt be plenty of users who leap at the chance to customize its interface. Your Persona will appear in a few places: on the Awesome Screen (which appears when you tap in...

Firefox 4 Beta for Android is now faster and smaller

Firefox 4 Beta 2 for Android became available earlier today, and it promises to bring many improvements over the initial beta. First off, it will use up a lot less space -- a precious commodity for almost all Android smartphones. The second beta should occupy about 17 MB once installed, compared to the first version's whopping 43 MB (which is almost a third of the entire app space most Android dev...

Firefox Mobile 2.0 alpha (aka Fennec) hits Android and Maemo

Bleeding edge Firefox fans will be happy to know that an alpha version of Firefox mobile 2.0 (aka Fennec) has just landed on Android and Maemo devices. If you're running Android 2.0+, or if you've got a Nokia N900, you can download and test out the latest version of Mozilla's mobile browser right now. Highlights of Fennec 2 include navigating through tags via swiping gestures, rendering pages w...

Firefox Mobile for Android this year, Windows Mobile... later?

The folks at Mozilla have been working on a mobile version of the popular Firefox web browser for much of the past two years. A lot of that work has been focused on Windows Mobile and Nokia's Maemo platform. But in October, we found out that a version for Google Android devices was on its way. We even saw an early screenshot earlier this month. Now we have something resembling a time frame. Mo...

Pre-alpha screenshots reveal progress on Firefox for Android

Mozilla's Firefox browser may not be available for Android yet, but they can prove they're working on it. Some screenshots of a pre-alpha version of the browser have slipped out, and they show the full Firefox interface instead of the mobile UI we've seen on Maemo devices. That will probably change, though, according to Moziilla developer Vladimir Vukićević. As you can see from the screenshot abo...

Mozilla on Firefox Mobile: All your app store are belong to us!

Oh my... not content with finally being at the stage where they're ready to release a working version of their 'Fennec' mobile web browser (albeit only for the Maemo based Nokia N900 initially), Mozilla seem to be on something of a mad world-domination-power-trip at the same time. Why? Well, Mozilla have declared that Firefox Mobile will render all existing device application stores redundan...

Firefox for Mobile Beta now available... if you own a Nokia N810 or N900

All ten of you that don't own a BlackBerry or iPhone... rejoice! I just can't believe I get to use the new Firefox for Mobile logo twice in two days. It might be buggy, it might be slow, but the Fennec web browser has finally been branded a Mozilla product and dubbed the 'Firefox for Mobile Beta 5'. If you want to see a picture of it up and running on a mobile handset, head on over to the NokiaE...

Mobile Firefox has a new logo: Furry fetishists rejoice!

You are looking at the new logo for Firefox Mobile: The Pocketfox! It looks more like some Harry Potter fan-art in my opinion -- someone with a Fawkes the Phoenix fetish -- but no matter! It's cute and very vibrant. It will certainly stand out, and ultimately that's what matters. I can't help but wonder if the 'What's that in your pocket?' double entendre was intentional or not. I'd like to thi...
