Firefox for Android Beta 1

We’ve been waiting and waiting for Firefox to become available to the public on Android devices (I’ve been waiting for two years), and the time has finally come where anyone with an Android can test it out.

The browser, previously known as Fennec, is just in it’s first beta, so don’t expect market quality performance from what will eventually be one of the best browsers–if not the best–available for the Android platform. But this beta, which can be downloaded here (check supported gadgets first), offers a nice glimpse into what I hope is the not-too-distant future. Notable features of the app include an interesting method of accessing settings and tabs, the ability to sync all kinds of stored data with the desktop app, and extensions.
