Firefox 4 Beta for Mobile Now Available for Download

SMS Text

Mozilla posted on their blog yesterday that the new Firefox 4 for mobile beta was available for download and testing.  It is built to be a seamless transition from the desktop experience to users mobile devices. Aiding in this is the inclusion of Firefox Sync. This feature allows you to bring passwords, form-fill data, bookmarks, tabs, and web browsing history with you so that you no longer have to re-enter all of your passwords or favorite sites again.

Also included in the Firefox 4 beta for mobile are Electrolysis (which was available i the alpha version), Layers, pinch-to-zoom, and the Awesome screen which is accessible through the Awesome Bar and allows users to view bookmarks and recent browser history. All of your personal data on Firefox is encrypted on both ends, so that you are the only one that has access to your data.

With Mozilla’s main focus being to “increase performance and responsiveness” do you think the new features will cater to that goal?
