Firefox Mobile (AKA Fennec) Hits Beta

Mozilla’s Firefox-like mobile browser, Fennec, has reached its first beta release, with TraceMonkey-backed JavaScript, better support for add-ons, “gestures” and no-button browsing, and a few other neat developments. The full release notes show what’s new in Beta 1, but most people will want to know how to get it on their phones. And the answer is, still, not quite yet—this release is only officially supported on Nokia N810 tablets, or in a kind of emulator for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Most of the changes between the alpha releases and this beta are faster, faster, and faster—panning, zooming, start-up, and other performance tweaks. Check out the video walkthrough of the Beta1’s new features. Fennec is a free download for Nokia N810 tablets and Windows, Mac, and Linux systems.
