    Firefox was once the best browser available for the PC world, now Chrome takes the cake, but you can still experience this on your device. Just yesterday Mozilla released the beta version of their long waiting browsers. I guess they have worked out the kinks and issues that were present in the alpha, and are now hoping you enjoy the experience. I am not entirely sure I will use this on my phone since its all about Delphine browser, but I am sure some of you will want it.

    Check out the market for it. It's Android 2.0+ By the way.

    Donwload, installed and tested. IT SUCKS! It is NO faster and NO smaller than the alpha builds before it. As a matter of fact I would actually say it is slower. Not to mention the pinch to zoom is horrible, focus is horrible and rendering is even more horrible. I would rather use Lynx than this turd of a browser.

    Nice information but I think I will pass. I gave up on Firefox both for mobile and desktop.

    Xscope is my choice for mobile! Fast and easy.

    I tried to install it, but once it got to the 30MB mark, /data filled up and my phone started crashing. Droid is very limited on space, and I'm not going to be giving 30MB to a BROWSER.

    I installed it just now, and now I will uninstall it. It's beta I know, but feels alpha. Has a long way to go yet. Xscope is the best.

    I installed and was very excited to start using it.

    It froze the phone up on the first webpage load. Had to battery pull. I will be uninstalling.

    Apparently Firefox still thinks that they're developing a Desktop browser here, because this thing is SLOW.

    Come on Mozilla. Either push out a quality product, or don't push one out at all.

    makes you wonder how thorough the testing was for this app. IMO, Dolphin Browser IS the mobile version of FF.
