I hope the Android Firefox doesn't suffer same fate as the PC Counterpart with speedy upgrades and way too many bugs. So far i'm impressed to see that the firefox team did a good job with the Android version.

Amazing , it's much much better than the last time I used it 3 months ago. It's really speedy and powerful.

From now on, I use firefox and wait for the next update of Chrome
