    Maybe I'm missing something, but it seems like there would be very little to test if the program doesn't serve its main purpose in the beta version

    Seems to me, that would be like trying out the beta version of a navigation software that doesn't use GPS yet...

    LOL I gotta agree with most of the posts here. A browser that doesn't browse? How incredibly useful! Where can I send my money?

    To see if it works? Well.. since it doesn't browse, let me save em the trouble. NO. It does not work. This seems so silly to me... but I will be very stoked to have FF on my phone... once it works - again, this version does not... and no, I aint psychic lol!

    Just teasin the FF team a bit... sorta

    Take care,
    Rob

    indeed. browser that can't browse is sheer fail. Firefox is my without a doubt my fav browser choice in PCs but in android, Dolphin Browser already does a pretty good job for me so I think I'll be fine.

    hmm, I've been excited about this since hearing some news late last year. At least Mozilla is giving us some kind of news and soon some sort of product. Shame it won't be terribly useful though but I'm interested to see what it will look like!

    Is it going to be as bloated and slow as the Firefox desktop browser has become?

    K, I'll play the role of buzz-kill...

    So next month they will be at the same point they were with the WM version almost 2 years ago.... WOW, impressive... Especially when seeing that in that time they still haven't made any real progress with the WM version. So this means we may have a working beta for Android in 2012. Can't wait:icon_ banana: It should be REALLY impressive on my new device (probably the Droid 3):icon_ devil:

    (And yes to any potential flamers, I realize they didn't have the Android platform available to build for 2 years ago, this is more a statement of how SLOWWWWW and disappointing Fennac development has been since its conception especially compared to it's competition).

    Yeah it is, but it won't upgrade anything, it will just go on your phone and look pretty with the 2.1 under the version window...:)
