Mozilla has released the Alpha build of its Fennec mobile Firefox browser for Android devices and the Nokia N900. The browser is the first to offer add-ons and uses the same rendering code as Firefox for desktop systems. Fennec Alpha brings with it Firefox Sync that shares Awesome Bar browsing history, bookmarks, passwords, form-fill data and open tabs between desktop and mobile devices.
Developers Michael Wu, Brad Lassey, Alex Pakhotin and Vladimir Vukićević have released what they call a pre-alpha version of Fennec, or the Firefox web browser for mobile devices, specifically for Android-powered smartphones. Being pre-Alpha, the team warns the build has only been tested on the Motorola Droid and Nexus One handsets. At the same time, bugs are present and may cause a handset to freeze and require a reboot.
Mozilla's Firefox Mobile browser, Fennec, has been released on Tuesday for the HTC Touch Pro handset, albeit in an as yet unfinished Milestone Release, or pre-alpha build, says a Wednesday WMExperts report. The limited release of the software is lacking certain features, chief among them the automatic updates. Also, the HTC Touch Pro's virtual keyboard will not be usable with the browser, as there is no soft keyboard support in this version. Users will have to use the device's QWERTY keyboard to enter data. Plug-in support is also disabled in this version.
