Mozilla has just released the first beta of Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo. Firefox mobile is also known as Fennec, and it is built on the same platform as the desktop version and includes features like Firefox Sync, Add-ons, and the Awesome bar.
According to a blog post announcing the beta release, this release aims to increase performance and responsiveness using the two big architectures – Electrolysis and Layers. Firefox 4 Beta for mobile delivers a personalized, seamless and encrypted web experience across devices with the integrated Firefox Sync.
Firefox Sync surely looks exciting since browsing history, bookmarks, tabs, and passwords are synced across your mobile and desktop devices. The Awesome bar gives you access to recent history, bookmarks and tabs.
To be honest, the pre-alpha and alpha versions of Fennec were literally unusable. With the release of beta, I expect the browsing experience is much better. If you get to use it sooner than us, do let us know your experience with Firefox 4 beta for Mobile.
