    Hey folks!

    Now this is great news for all, disliking the original browser!
    Firefox for Android is on its way to the devices.

    [​IMG]

    On February 2010, as announced, there will be a first release of the well known browser! Sadly, this first version wont be able to surf around the net, but being able to start and locate major issues. Though being available for Windows Mobile and Maemo already, Firefox has to run real stable and fast to compete with the internal chrome-lite browser. A release for a surfable version hasn't been announced yet, but there is at least a good direction.

    So if the first version can't surf the net what is the point??? Been waiting anxiously for this but I'll wait a little longer for the full working version.

    A browser that doesn't browse...

    Very interested concept!

    Seriously though, I can't wait to have this on my phone. The ability to sync my laptop, work, and phone favorites together is going to be wonderful.

    Its just a announcement. Maybe they will do better in the first version.
    PLUS: its very important for all to know that something happens in that direction!

    Surfable or not, I'll be glad to help beta test. As nice as the stock browser is, I keep finding myself missing the features I'm used to in Firefox.

    Alright! I personally use Chrome now more than ever, although the Android Browser seems nothing like chrome, this is very good news and great to see a familiar face on my homescreen :D

    That's very odd, but I guess they just want us to know something is coming.
