    Firefox Beta 4 Now Available With Big Promises


    Firefox for Android has not gotten any traction since initially being released, and for good reason. Those reasons are supposedly fixed now and the latest release promises a better experience if you’re interested. The browser was previously sluggish, a memory hog and just not worth it, but this new version has some pretty strong highlights. The most noticeable is that it’s faster than the stock Android browser, and also has better stability and reduced memory usage.
    • Now faster than stock Android browser
    • Nearly three times faster on Kraken JavaScript benchmark tests
    • Twice as fast on SunSpider JavaScript benchmark tests
    • Reduced installation memory usage
    • Stability improvements
    • Fixed keyboard bugs
    • Improved zooming readability

    If this sounds like something you’d like to try out… Head over to the Market, and give it a go.

    Best build yet, but still no flash support, and it broke the adblock plugin again. Getting really close now though. Once it supports flash it will probably become my primary browser.

    Maybe finally worth a try.
    Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

    Certainly better than beta 3 but not up to Dolphin Mini or HD level yet. I hope so soon though. I love being able sync my bookmarks and browser history from my pc.

    Tried it just a bit ago and it was way slow on my Droid even though my Droid has a CPU setting of 1266mhz.

    I was eagerly waiting for this... but I've since retired my Firefox browser on my PC for Chrome and I don't have the urge to install FF on my Droid anymore
