For those of you who prefer to rock an Android handset over Apple’s brand of smartphone sexy, prepare to be giddy: Mozilla has announced the immediate availability of Fennec (Firefox) alpha for Android, bringing with it improved performance and responsiveness that even occasional on-the-go users are sure to enjoy. The alpha version of the software marks Mozilla’s second update to Fennec for Android since April and brings us one step closer to the much anticipated beta version of the software.
In an interview with the folks at TechRadar, Mozilla’s representatives stated that a full, bona fide version of Firefox would be available to Android users in the later this year. Currently, the browser’s developers are hard at work crossing their eyes and dotting some tees as they pay close attention to some of the finer details of the software, including how it handles video, zooming and scrolling.
While we wait for that release, there’s no reason why Android loving road warriors can’t add some awesome to their browsing experience right now. The Fennec alpha comes complete with the ability to include add-ons, such as a Twitter client to your browser, for a richer web experience.
For those interested, the Firefox Fennec alpha can be downloaded here.
