Latest Firefox 4 Beta for Android and Maemo Now Live!

We are excited to release the latest Firefox 4 Beta for Android and Maemo!

Visit Firefox.com/m on your phone’s default browser to get Firefox 4 Beta on your Android or Nokia N900. Android users: you can also get Firefox 4 Beta from the Android Market by searching of “Mozilla Firefox.”

This release is the fastest performing Firefox 4 Beta for mobile yet. You will notice faster start-up, page load times and responsiveness to panning and zooming. Additionally, Firefox 4 for mobile offers over 100 add-ons in its growing gallery. Though not all are compatible with this release, you can still choose from dozens of add-ons to change the look, feel and functionality of your Firefox.

Ok, so more on speed: our recent tests on JavaScript benchmarks show Firefox 4 Beta is faster than the stock Android browser; roughly three times faster on Kraken, about twice as fast on SunSpider and slightly faster on V8. Everything from start-up time and page load time to responsiveness and panning and zooming are snappy in this release. Other advancements in this release include increasing stability, reducing installation memory usage, improving readability with zooming, and fixing some keyboard issues.

The rate at which our add-ons gallery is growing has been impressive. Developers, you can now build restartless mobile add-ons, allowing a user to easily install and use your add-on in just one tap! With Firefox 4 Beta for mobile, developers can use the latest Web technologies like HTML5, CSS and JavaScript to build fast, powerful and beautiful mobile apps and add-ons that can reach millions of people. Firefox 4 Beta already has many useful mobile add-ons to choose from and we can’t wait to see what developers build next.

We’re building an awesome browser due to all your help and feedback. Keep it coming!
