Fennec beta 2 browser released for Nokia Internet Tablets
I’ve got a busy weekend with a soccer tourney, but thought you may enjoy knowing there is a new web browser alternative for your Nokia Internet Tablet. According to the Mozilla blog you can update to Fennec Beta 2 on your Internet Tablet (Maemo device at Beta 2) or Windows Mobile (at Alpha 2) device. When you visit the Fennec website you will see that this update includes improving the user experience, fixing bugs and improving performance. Keep in mind that this is still a beta release so you may not want to rely on it as your primary web browser.
The Mozilla folks list the intentions for this browser, that include:
- get wider feedback on our approach to the user experience
- engage Mozilla community teams, including localizers, and testers
- get feedback from Web developers
- encourage add-on developers to port existing add-ons and invent new ones for mobile
If you have Fennec on your Nokia Internet Tablet you should just be able to update it through the software manager. If you don’t have it yet, visit the install area on the site to see how to install it on your device.
Anyone give it a whirl yet?
