Mozilla today announced that the mobile version of its Firefox 4 browser has graduated from beta status and is available as a full download to any Android device. Mozilla claims that its browser is three times faster than the native Android browser, and it offers a wide range of tools, such as account syncing, tabbed browsing, better access to browsing history, and access to browser add-ons. The application is free to download from the Android Market. It is also available to Nokia's Maemo platform.

Why no flash??!!

They could've just made it optional like Dolphin does, and it would easily be the BEST Android brower out. As it stands now if i want to use firefox i still have to keep Dolphin installed for those times when i need flash.

Everything else about this browser is great so far, tab setup is really well done.
Totally what I clicked on "comments" to comment about. I'm rather surprised that Firefox neglected this highly important aspect of the browsing experience.

Firefox also works on land!
