Fennec for Android pre-alpha has just been released today for public to try out and give feedback. Developers want the browser to be developed according to the end user’s needs and requirements.
Since it’s a 10.2MB installation and requires atleast an Android 2.0 device with OpenGL support, I tried it on my Nexus One. The browser is pretty slow at the moment, but like the developer said, “it’s even more of a pre-nightly build (even earlier than pre-alpha)”. It’s usable though.
Fennec for Android, Firefox Mobile, ‘super’ pre-alpha version is now available for download! Yes, it is still in its very early stages, but atleast it could open websites ;)
It has been a long time since Firefox has been talking about Fennec for Android and promised with an alpha release soon. They kept their promise, and the first alpha release is out for public download.
Fennec for Android is now available for download, unofficially though. Mozilla said they would be soon releasing a working, simple alpha release of Fenenc but it’s nowhere to be seen so far.
A developer at Android forums managed to grab the dump from Mozilla Wiki and compile it in to an app that he tried and tested on his Motorola Droid.
