Firefox 4 Mobile officially released for Android and Maemo devices

Moments ago, Mozilla stripped the release candidate moniker from Firefox 4 Mobile and pronounced it fit for public release. If you have a Nokia N900 phone, or a fairly-modern Android 2.0-or-later device, go ahead and install it from the Market, by using scanning the QR code after the break, or by visiting Firefox.com/m. Accompanying the release is the launch of Spark, a cute social game that's...

Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo coming 'in a few weeks'

Jay Sullivan, Mozilla's vice president of products, has told the IDG News Service at the Mobile World Congress that Firefox 4 for Android will ship in a few weeks. We should expect to see one more beta version this week, and then the final build soon after. Sullivan also tells IDG about Firefox for Mobile's extensive feature set -- 150 add-ons will be available! -- and Mozilla's overall move to...

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...

The Future of the Web: behind the scenes of Firefox 4 Mobile with principal engineer Vladimir Vukićević

Just yesterday Mozilla released the first beta of Firefox 4 (Fennec) for Android and Maemo. We've reported on various versions of Firefox for Mobile, but this build is something else entirely -- this is actually Firefox 4, with the Fennec UI strapped on top. Externally, from an end-user point of view, this is business as usual: Mozilla has been trying to produce a working version of Fennec for...

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...

Enthusiasts get Chromium browser running on Nokia N900

Owners of Nokia's impressive N900 handset can already browse the web using Firefox, and now they've got another excellent option: Chromium. Unlike Firefox for Maemo, however, this is the full-on desktop Chromium browser (for better or worse). It's been ported from the 32-bit Debian package and requires a little command-fu to install, but the procedure is pretty simple. The four-step process is...

Moblin, Maemo merge to form light weight Linux for netbooks, handhelds

Moblin Linux is the light-weight Linux distribution Intel developed to run on low power netbooks with small screens and Intel Atom processors. Maemo is the light weight Linux distribution that Nokia developed to run on its handheld internet tablets including the Nokia N900 and N810. Or at least that was true yesterday. Today, the two companies announced that they're merging the projects to...

February Fifth Firefox Friday Five!

(Can you tell that I'm trying to spice things up around here?) We've actually been discussing how to 'sass-up' Firefox Friday Five. Interviews with Mozilla developers? Add-on creators? Perhaps we could even get a perspective from competitors -- how does Microsoft intend to combat Firefox? With Chrome and Firefox both being open source and effectively having a shared code base, can either one of...

Get your Nokia N900s ready, because Firefox for Maemo RC3 is out now

The folks at Mozilla are on a roll this month: first, they got Firefox 3.6 out the door and onto the desktops of millions of users, and now they're delivering Firefox to the palm of your hand. That is, if you own a Maemo phone, like the Nokia N900. Firefox for Maemo just got its third release candidate, which indicates it's quite close to a final release. RC3 cleans up a few bugs and addresses an...

Foursquare (unofficially) becomes available on the Nokia N900

Foursquare, the location-based game of checking in at venues to compete for points and "mayorships," has landed on just about every mobile platform out there. We told you when it first arrived on the iPhone, when it got an even better app for Android, when it came out for the Blackberry, and when it finally hit the Palm Pre last week. Well, now you can even play Foursquare on a Nokia N900 - just...

Firefox for Mobile 1.0 gets a release candidate

Good news, Nokia users! if you're fortunate enough to own one of those swish Maemo-powered smartphones: Firefox for Mobile has hit 1.0! The beta releases have been picking up pace, and now with the release candidate (RC) and a beautiful logo, Mozilla means business with Firefox for Mobile! Unfortunately this is just for Maemo-based devices, a distribution of Linux based on Debian. Right now...
