    Users of Firefox beta for Android will be pleasantly surprised by this newest update. It packs in some very noteworthy changes. The biggest differences are that it now includes flash support, has improved performance, and has a native UI. This new UI is designed to “blend in with the Android user interface” according to Mozilla the creators of the software. It is now available in the Google Play Store in English only (for now).

    Because they are trying to move to HTML5 and get away from Flash.

    This. Flash, IMHO, is woefully outdated; way too resource intensive, and needs to be replaced ASAP.
