When we last checked in on the Fennec browser for Android, the software was in the nightly build stage. While the browser is still in the space between pre-Alpha and Alpha, the new build is faster and is said to be more polished than the prior version. To download the latest build of the Fennec browser for Android, simply click on this link. It is recommended that your Android be powered by a 1GHz processor (Snapdragon, Hummingbird or the TI OMAP 3630-1000) so that your phone will get the ultimate performance from Fennec. The software allows for tabbed browsing and an add-on called "Weave" which allows you to sync your bookmarks, passwords and tabs between the mobile and desktop versions of the browser. There is also an integrated search engine which defaults to Google. For Android users, it is quickly shaping up to be another browsing option in what is rapidly becoming a crowded market.

It is still crap as used by me on my Evo but shows promise. I'd like to see it bring that distinctly Mozilla feel to the Android OS when it is all said and done.
