Finally, Mozilla released its official mobile browser for Android devices. Mozilla said the new Firefox for Android is redesigned to offer significantly faster performance than the stock web browser shipped on every Android phone.
You might wonder how exactly this mobile version looks like compared to its desktop counterpart – and well, the new Firefox for Android “has a fresh and streamlined look with a personalized start page”. There’s a new feature called Awesome Screen where you can see all your browsing history, bookmarks, passwords, and form data to your handset, and the popular features like Tabbed browsing, Firefox Sync, and Add-ons are all onboard as well. Firefox for Android also supports Flash contents which means you can always watch videos or play games in any case those contents are designed with Flash technology.
The new Firefox for Android is now available for download at Google Play and works for devices running at least Android 2.2 or higher.
On another note, Google finally released its Chrome browser for Android out of beta. The final build of Chrome for Android is also promised to offer faster browsing experience and brings popular features like tabbed browsing, Incognito mode, and of course the simple and intuitive UI remains untouched.
But unlike the Firefox for Android, Google Chrome for Android will only work on devices running Android 4.0 or higher. It’s now available at Google Play via this link.
