Firefox Mobile 6.0 Comes to Android


Those of you following the evolution of web browsers already know about the desktop version of Firefox hitting the 6.0 milestone — ahead of schedule — last week. Today, some of the same goodness that’s packaged inside the desktop version is available in the updated version for Android-powered smartphones and tablets.

Firefox version 6.0 includes the following upgrades and enhancements:

1. Higher-quality image rendering and smoother zooming

2. First wave of optimizations for tablets and large-screen devices

3. Improved interaction with touch-optimized sites (e.g Google Maps, games)

4. Improved form helper

5. Visual refresh for phones running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

6. Continued performance and memory management enhancements
