Mozilla Releases an Alpha Browser for Android31st August 2010
Mozilla has today released an alpha version of its mobile browser for Smartphones running Google's Android Operating System. Stuart Parmenter Mozilla's mobile team technical lead said that the alpha version of Mozilla mobile browser, Fennec 2.0 is built on the same gecko engines that power the Firefox 4. In addition to that it adds integrated synchronization and boosts performance by separating user interface and rendering processes. Furthermore, Mozilla baked its Firefox sync service into Fennec 2.0, which keeps the passwords, bookmarks, browser history and other data consistent across multiple smart phones and computers.
In a Mozilla blog today, Parmneter said that "this release of alpha version includes elctrolysis, which allows the interface to run in a separate process from one already rendering web content". Fennec 2.0 can be easily installed on many, but not on all the Smartphones running the Google's Android operating system. These Smartphones include the droid incredible, HTC's desire, EVO 4G and legend, Motorola's droid 2 and droid X. As yet, Mozilla has not announced the final release date for Fennec, but it is expected that it would ship later this month. The Android Smartphone owners can simply try out Fennec 2.0 by downloading it from Mozilla's mobile site.
