Following upon the promise made late last month, Mozilla has now announced that their full fledged browser for Android OS and Maemo are now available for download as public betas. These new Firefox 4 beta for mobile can be downloaded on your Android or Maemo phones by clicking here.
Mozilla has pointed out one of the best things about this new browser application is its responsiveness and performance. The browser is also integrated with Firefox Sync to create a seamless browsing experience across several platforms. The new features in this latest version release include
- Pinch-to-zoom (Android), double-tap, or use the volume rocker (Nokia N900) to zoom in and out
- Tabbed browsing in thumbnail view lets you easily see and open the site you want
- Location-Aware Browsing gives you content and info relevant to your location
- Find in Page in the Site Menu lets you quickly find text on the webpage
- Add Search Engine in the Site Menu lets you quickly add a new search engine to your Awesome Screen
- Context Menu lets you Open in New Tab and Share by long tapping and holding a link
- Password Manager lets you choose to remember site password to avoid typing
Considering that a full fledged Firefox app for the iPhone or Blackberry is not coming anytime soon, this is really a great time to be an Android user. What do you think?
