Firefox Mobile Release Candidate Coming Next Week
Our goal is to have a release candidate next week, .If things go smoothly, we’ll have a (final) version out in the next few weeks,with the debut planned for this year.
Mozilla has been a leader in innovations in Web browsing with its add-ons, extensions and plug-ins. On the mobile phone,it is a different story as Firefox has been AWOL. On the higher-end mobile phones an open-source project called WebKit powers the browser. The first mobile Firefox version will run on Nokia’s new N900, a $569 hybrid computer and mobile phone that uses Nokia’s Linux-based Maemo operating system. This is an odd choice as it is a rather pricey and not well known device. A Windows Mobile version of Firefox is set to arrive next year, and Mozilla has begun working on an Android version. It is about time for Firefox to catch up. From what I can tell from this little video, they intend to do this and more.
