Barence writes “Mozilla has launched a ‘pre-alpha’ version of Firefox for Android smartphones. The mobile version of Firefox, codenamed Fennec, has until now been restricted to Maemo Linux handsets. But following a surge in developer effort, Mozilla has unveiled a build for handsets running Android 2.0 or above. Mozilla is making no guarantees about the browser’s stability. ‘It will likely not eat your phone, but bugs might cause your phone to stop responding, requiring a reboot,’ writes Mozilla developer Vladimir Vukicevic on his blog. ‘Memory usage of this build isn’t great — in many ways it’s a debug build, and we haven’t really done a lot of optimization yet. This could cause some problems with large pages, especially on low memory devices like the Droid.’”
