Android Tablet Firefox betas ready for trial fondling

Grab a slab, stroke a Fennec - at your own risk

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Android tablets can now play with a beta version of mobile Firefox, complete with desktop synchronisation, proper tabbed browsing and all the other UI goodies promised.

The usual cautionary notes apply – these are nightly builds made available for bug tracking and reporting, so downloaders should expect a reasonable amount of failure. Mozilla is hoping that will generate a lot of feedback, and perhaps even recruit some new developers to the open-source project.

The tablet space is seeing a good deal of innovation in browsing interfaces, and Firefox has made some controversial decisions about the best way to replicate the desktop experience on a fondleslab, but new ideas are to be welcomed even if they sometimes take a little getting used to. ®
