Fast Firefox mobile for Android released.

Firefox browser has finally found its way to Android 4 today and is available as a free download on Google Play. I now have three browsers on my Galaxy Nexus. At first sight, I can say that Firefox does load faster than Google Chrome and is visually more appealing. No need for a scientific approach to determine that. It works really well as stated in the release note. Check it out after the break.

Here's the list of features as per the release note:

  • Faster start-up and page load times.
  • Support for Adobe Flash.
  • The user interface has been completely re-designed with a new Awesome Screen.
  • New personalized Start Page with top sites and tabs from last time.
  • Better readability through font size inflation.
  • Tap-to-play is default for plugins.
  • Google searches now utilize HTTPS.
  • New panning/zooming architecture implemented for better touch responsiveness.
  • Top sites, Bookmarks, and History are now even more accessible from the Awesome Bar.
For a complete list of changes and fixes go to the release notes page.

Download on Google Play.
