Mozilla today announced a new version of Firefox 4 Beta for mobile. The latest build offers a significant reduction in the size of the application (from 43MB down to 17MB). It also includes a revised user interface, the ability to "undo" closing of tabs, and smoother panning and zooming. Mozilla claims that the browser is 25% faster than the stock Android browser. Mozilla said the next beta will add hardware acceleration and enable HTML5 video playback. The beta is a free download for Android devices running 2.2 Froyo and for Nokia's Maemo platform.

Either that or it's not available in the market. I would suggest going to Mozilla's site and downloading it from there.

I downloaded it and it works great on my Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 with 2.1. It appears most mobile add ons have not been updated to support this new beta version; should be great once they do. Save to PDF function is nice.
