Android/Maemo: We’ve been pretty happy with the new Firefox mobile betas, but Mozilla continues to improve it, this time fixing up a few features like add-on discovery, keyboard support, Firefox Sync, and adding a feature to save a page as a PDF.
This release doesn’t add a ton of new features, but does offer a few nice improvements on new features from the earlier betas. It has improved add-on discovery, added a Save to PDF feature, and fixed some keyboard issues. Along with the keyboard issues, however, come other fixes intending to keep you away from your phone’s tiny keyboard as much as possible—like a new way to set up Sync through your PC instead of your phone. Sync will save your history, bookmarks, tabs and passwords so you have to do less typing on-the-go, which is great. They’ve also added copy and paste support to the URL bar. It doesn’t look like there’s a huge performance boost in this particular version, either, but they say that they’ll still be focusing on improving it in future releases. If you liked the previous betas but found its features a little clunky to use, you may want to check out this build, as it seems to have streamlined a number of issues.
Firefox 4 Mobile Beta is a free download for Android and Maemo.
