New Firefox 4 Beta for Android and Maemo Released

Feb 2, 2011

Mozilla today announced the release of the latest Firefox 4 Beta for Android and Maemo. You can get Mozilla Firefox 4 Beta from the Android Market to test on your Google Android device or go here to get Firefox 4 Beta on your Nokia Maemo device. Mozilla say this is the "fastest performing Firefox 4 Beta for mobile yet", ... "with increased stability, reducing installation memory usage, improving readability with zooming, and fixing some keyboard issues".

In our Tests unfortunately FireFox did still feel a bit slow and bloated compared to the competition, but then again we do have to weigh up if this sacrifice is worth the benefit of the Mobile Add-ons Gallery which offers more than 100 plugins. This is definitely a step in the right direction and the vision of the Web Browsing experience promised by Mozilla becomes one step closer to a reality.

The growing Mobile Add-ons Gallery offers more than 100 add-ons to customize the features, functionality and look of Firefox. Developers can now create mobile add-ons for Firefox that allow a user easily install and use that add-on without the need to restart their browser. With Firefox 4 Beta for mobile, developers can use the latest Web technologies like HTML5, CSS and JavaScript to build fast, powerful and beautiful mobile apps and add-ons that can reach millions of people. Firefox 4 Beta already has many useful mobile add-ons to choose from and we can’t wait to see what developers build next.
