    Hey folks,

    There is a new "nightly build" of the alpha of "FENNEC", the mobile browser version of the well known firefox. I've tested it on my Nexus one, and beside loading a bit too long, the look and feel of this version is GREAT! Also, the size has been reduced from 30MB down to 9MB!

    Keep up the good work!

    The only thing needed now, is speed, and all the good addons we know from firefox! But try it yourself!

    I get an error about parsing, likely due to formatting my SD card in preparation for apps 2sd.

    Doesn't work for me. It just goes to black screen when I try to launch and then returns to home screen.

    Dolphin IS faster,
    but optics and usability also UI is way better on fennec
    and remember, fennec is STILL ALPHA ...Dolphin is released ^^
