Fennec 2.0 Is Coming For Android Users From Mozilla!

Mozilla today released an alpha version of its mobile browser for smartphones running Google's Android operating system.

Fennec 2.0., which is considered to be the power of Firefox 4, has included integrated synchronization. Moreover, it is responsible for boosting performance by rendering processes as well as user interface.

Apart from that there is Electrolysis, due to which the browser interface is able to run in a separate process. With the help of this process Fennic can react faster to user input. The Electrolysis technology also is able to operate with add-ons.

This release includes Electrolysis, which allows the browser interface to run in a separate process from the one rendering Web content," said Parmenter in a post to the Mozilla blog today. "By doing this, Fennec is able to react much faster to user input while pages are loading or CPU intensive JavaScript is running.

Mozilla added its Firefox Sync service into Fennec 2.0., with the help of the service one can keep passwords, browser history, bookmarks, open tabs as well as other data.

Users of earlier editions could take advantage of Sync by means of add-on. In fact, it was the first time when it was decided to add Fennec.

It is possible to install Fennec 2.0 on many smartphones that are based on Google’s Android operating system.

Although Mozilla did not disclose a final release date for fennec 2.0, still it was noted that September 7 is a final deadline for Beta.

We've not had a proper chance to see how stable Firefox is on a mobile phone, but early indications show a surprisingly usable little web browser, though as yet little advantage over the one built in.
