Mozilla releases Fennec 2.0 Alpha 1 for Android & Nokia N900
The Mozilla mobile project developers have announced the arrival of the first alpha for version 2.0 of Firefox for Mobile, also known as " Fennec", for the Nokia N900 and various Android devices. The latest mobile versions of Firefox are built on the same browser engine as Firefox 4.0, version 2.0 of the Gecko rendering platform, and include several elements from their desktop counterpart, such as built-in support for Firefox Sync, add-ons and the "Awesome Bar" smart URL bar.
Fennec for Android requires version 2.0 of Android or later. A list of supported devices is available on the Mozilla Wiki. Users testing the release are encouraged to provide feedback and report any bugs that they encounter.
More details about the release, including a demo video, can be found in the official release announcement and in the release notes. Users can download Fennec by visiting Firefox.com/m/alpha from their Nokia N900 or Android device. The release notes also list downloadable versions of Firefox for Mobile on Windows, Mac OS X or Linux which allow users to evaluate the browser without using an Android device or a Nokia N900.
