Firefox gives special attention to Android

firefox for android

Mozilla recently released the much awaited Firefox 4. This happened as the two other main browsers, Google’s chrome launched Chrome 11 and Microsoft launched Internet explorer 9. Serious war it is.

Well, i am a staunch user of chrome, but am not endorsing it, feel free to use the browser you like. So it happened that i was going over to “First wife” Mozilla just to check on a website i was developing on a different browser. And this is what am greeted by.



Followed the link and came across this video which sums the features that come with firefox for mobile. Great features i tell you. Who wouldnt want to sync your desktop browser with the phone browser and continue browsing like you hadn’t event stopped?

And had to go and check whats in it for me, symbian user. Nil. Microsoft did a big fail by ignoring windows XP users when making the big move to Internet Explorer 9, considering that upto 50% of desktop users are on windows XP, Mozilla is also failing a loyal user base by ignoring other OSes. Thats where browsers like Opera mini, Opera Mobile and Bolt browser share the cake.
Well, so much for mozilla giving juice to Android, its a good OS, very good indeed, and has had many of my friends’ touch buds tickled.
