In this video, we give you a tour of Mozilla Fennec Alpha. Though the program is totally unstable and difficult to use, we get some glimpses of what Mozilla has in store for its upcoming mobile browser, which brings several elements of Firefox 3 to handheld devices.

First, we see the tray-like organization of open tabs, complete with a thumbnail for ease of reference. Then, we see the extendability of the address bar, which offers suggestions plus gives quick access to several search engines. We also get a view of the extension/add on interface, which, if implemented fully in the final release, may add a lot of customizability to the mobile browsing experience – imagine being about to use a plugin like Foxmarks (highly recommended) to keep all of your bookmarks and passwords sync’ed across your browsers. That would be sweet. Thanks to FuzeMobility for the spot. We’d throw you a download link for the Alpha, but trust us…it’s best to wait this one out until we have a stable release.
