Mozilla Relsed first mobile Firefox Browser

Mozilla has officially relsed the first mobile Firefox, a condensed version of the popular open-source browser that runs on 's Maemo platform.

named 'Fennec,' Firefox 1.0 for Maemo was previously available only as a beta. Mozilla calls this the first mobile web browser to accomodate add-ons - long a staple of the Firefox desktop browser. More than 40 add-ons are alrdy available for the new mobile platform, including AdBlock Plus, the most famous of Firefox extensions.

The inaugural mobile Firefox also offers Mozilla's Awesome Bar, a way of quickly returning to sites you've visited in the past; the new Wve Sync tool, for synchronizing bookmarks and other Firefox settings across multiple machines; and, yes, those familiar Firefox tabs.

Two days ago, when it pushed out a third relse candidate for Firefox mobile 1.0, Mozilla removed support for an plug-in, saying it had "degraded the performance of the browser to the point where it didn't meet our standards." Instd, the open sourcers urge you to install a YouTube Enabler add-on that will at lst let you watch Googles on the browser.

The new browser runs on Maemo 5, which mns your only smartphone option is the 990. You can download the browser here.

Mozilla is currently alpha testing a version of Fennec for Window Mobile, and it has prototyped Firefox browsers for Google's Android platform. But it has no intention of building anything for the iPhone. , you see, doesn't allow interpreted of the Jesus Phone, and Mozilla won't waste time trying to put Firefox where it's "not wanted." ®
