Mozilla Releases Alpha of Fennec for Android and Nokia N900
Mozilla today announced the availability of an alpha version of its Fennec mobile browser for the Android platform and for the Nokia N900 (which runs Maemo Linux). Mozilla says this latest version of Fennec makes use of new features — "Electrolysis" and "Layers" — to improve the user experience and make transitioning from the desktop version of Firefox to mobile Fennec more seamless. The Electrolysis technology allows the browser interface to run in a separate process from the one rendering Web content. This means the browser can react faster to user input. The Layers technology will be added to the beta release of Fennec, and Mozilla claims that it will help with the user experience of Fennec by improving actions such as scrolling. The alpha of Fenned for Android and the N900 is a free download.
Mozilla always takes a long time.
Especially if you want to get it right.
You think this stuff is 'magic'?
