Firefox 6 Beta lands in the Android Market
posted by Michael H. / Jul 08, 2011, 8:28 PM
Firefox 6 Beta also includes improvements to:
- Enhance Firefox experience on large screen tablets
- Improveme the form helper on Android
- Fresh visual style on Gingerbread OS
- Optimize pages that use right to left layout rendering, e.g. in Hebrew and Arabic
- Touch Events for better interaction with Web pages
- IndexedDB allows Web pages to store data offline for faster access
- Automatic text hyphenation
It's a nice improvement all around, but if you like image intensive sites, this update is a must have. It's free in the Android Market.

ppl that are talking bad about FF either your phone cant handle it or you dont know how to use it. FF is the best browser availible because it has the most custimization problem is that it doesnt support Flash, which is the reason why i dont use it. If it had it i would use it. i also believe that the software has a memory leak because it will take 30-35 of ram but i have plenty of that to spare. Many of you that are having the slow responsiveness its because you dont have enough ram to spare for it to run properly.

You just hit the nail on the head. Slow responsiveness, memory leak, no flash support, slow page loading. FF has every problem that I do not want to have for my primary browser. How can that be a good browser? And, what benefits can you get by using customization?

firefox is hands down the best browser for desktop (I tried Chrome and it's just missing stuff that firefox has so easily accessible, like adblockplus and having the bookmarks/homepage easy to access) but the Android browser sucks butt, no flash? Lolno, I'll stick with the awesomeness of Dolphin HD

failure mozilla :-( love the desktop browser but man the android browser is poor as hell tried it again yesterday - then tried skyfire and xscope man - different league.. Personally i think they should go back to the drawing board with the mobile browser it seems its fundamentally wrong .... no amount of updates will fix it

They did it again! I tried the official version and didn't like it. Yesterday, I read an article that FF beta is available in the market, so I decided to give it a try expecting faster start-up, faster page loading and maybe some UI improvements. But, it is still slow, heavy and difficult to use. FF for desktop is a well-made web browser with highly customizable features. But, FF for Android has been a big disappointment so far.
