firefoxlogo150.pngHot on the heels of a phenomenally sucessful release of the desktop version of Firefox 4, Mozilla has just launched an Android version of the browser.

If you’re a Firefox user and an Android owner, then the browser’s worth downloading as it brings the Firefox sync, giving you access to your bookmarks, open tabs, form data, and passwords across computers. Firefox 4 also has a nice feature that hides the browser controls when they’re not in use, something that can take up the precious real estate on the smaller phone screen.

But it’s not just looks or even synced data that matter – it’s performance. A this latest version of Firefox for the Android is fast – up to three times faster than the standard Android browser, according to Mozilla – as its JavaScript engine has been enhanced so that pages load more quickly and graphics perform better. This new browser supports HTML5, but it doesn’t support Flash.

The app is available now via the Android Market. It’s a hefty 14 MB download.
