Default Firefox 4.0 beta for Android - 10-09-2010, 10:22 AM

Just released (2.0 and up only): | Mobile

I tried it out this morning, so far, not so impressive, but it is an early beta so it will get better.

It's not very quick, the page rendering is slow, when you zoom, text takes a couple of seconds to re size and fit itself properly.

It's obviously designed for smaller screens like the nexus one, as the navigation bar (which sits at the top of the page like the android 2.1 browser) is pretty big on the streak.

So far a lot of the add-ons (even the ones on the mobile add-ons page) aren't compatible with the current version. So no adblock just yet. But the fact they have a mobile add-ons page is promising.

The thing i'm most interested in is syncing with a desktop browser, since I use firefox on my laptop, to be able to share bookmarks, passwords, and possibly even 'chrome-to-phone' style link sharing really appeals to me.

Anyone else tried it yet? impressions? I'm interested to know how it runs for those on beta froyo.

Tried it with Froyo, doesn't support flash :/

Not amazed with it tbh, well I think it's fairer to say I'm not unimpressed with the stock so I see no reason to change

Please do not send me support requests via PM.

Doesn't work with flash? weird. The review of it I read said (or at least implied) that it did. Mind you it also said it was fast and smooth...

When I last used it it made my Streak feel like a ZX81, so yeah, sucks like a black hole
