    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...:)

    I've been patiently waiting for Firefox browser on the Droid too. Glad it looks like it's going to be here in February! Firefox is the only browser I've used on my home computers for many years.

    I looked at that link, and I wonder who, besides Tigger knew what the heck it means.

    I was also curious if this is Ms. Tigger on the right side of the page, and is her favorite song "Ride The Tiger":

    Here is that page translated

    " On the Mozilla community Web page camp firefox.de now announced that a first version of Firefox Mobile for Android will be available from next month (February 2010). The entire project is currently since December 2009 and now are "Worst work already performed".
    Surfing in the initial release should, however, is not possible, just start application to identify first vulnerabilities and errors.
    The mobile edition of Firefox already is maemo platform for Nokias and in a pre-release version for Windows Mobile available, the Android version wants to compete but Lite browser with internal chrome should she quite fast and stable work. I am pleased about this development at least."
