Firefox 4 for Android now available

Firefox 4 for Android now availableIn addition to the new version 4 of the desktop browser Mozilla have also released Firefox 4 for Android. It dishes up a better response, faster scrolling and a better overall user experience with Firefox Sync.

The app closely follows the look and feel of the desktop version and is available for free from the Android Market. A few handsets aren’t supported just yet (Droid or the Milestone), but it’s well worth the download.

    It looks ok, but I’m not sure if there is anything that screams at me to replace the standard browser with this. Can anyone who uses Firefox mobile give a convincing argument for? :)

  • Having installed FF4 on my desktop, I thought I’d try out the sync stuff by installing it on my phone, but it doesn’t seem to be available for my 2.1 Hero :(

    Firefox Mobile and Opera Mobile (not Opera Mini) use far too much storage space up. I cannot afford 12-20Mb on my HTC Desire. Dolphin HD is excellent and is only 3-4Mb. The stock Android browser is also very good.

    Most of my desktop bookmarks aren’t really suitable for smartphone use. I only visit a handful of sites on my smartphones. In short I don’t need sync.

    I don’t have experience in that firefox android version.. I think good response came from user experience..

  • I’m happy with the stock browser and also use Opera Mini when I’m on 2G and trying to save battery.

    My Desire HD chewed through 30% of its battery in about 2 hours. When I checked the battery usage statistics I can see that 73% of that battery drain came from firefox. I uninstalled it straight away.
