Firefox 4 beta for Maemo available with Firefox Sync and Awesome Screen

Firefox 4 beta for Maemo available with Firefox Sync and Awesome ScreenEven though I am testing out the Nokia N8 and using it almost exclusively with my T-Mobile SIM I still find my Maemo 5 Nokia N900 to be an excellent device. The service integration and web browser are awesome and today we hear that Firefox 4 beta for mobile is now available to download and install on the N900 and Android devices. This latest release is designed to increase performance and responsiveness, which is always a good thing.

You will find that Firefox Sync is included to sync browsing history, bookmarks, tabs, passwords and form-fill data so you can have a consistent experience between your PC/Mac and mobile phone. I have personally gone on to using Chrome as my preferred web browser, but still will have to try out this latest beta on my N900.

The Awesome Screen is supported in this release too. Have any readers installed it and tried it out yet?

This is really good news. I don’t use Firefox as my main browser (prefer Opera Mobile) but I think it’s really important that different mobile browsers are out there so that lazy web developers don’t only target features of WebKit.

I have been using the Fennec nightlies for awhile and have to say the improvements have been great and it is nearly as quick to open as the integrated gecko browser. I also use the firefox sync feature and find it to be the best addon I can be on the road and still keep track of where I was at home on my laptop. Functionality has clearly improved since the initial fennec release. I am big supporter of Firefox and always inform people when showing my phone that it has Firefox.

I’ve installed the new Beta, and I must say it’s a lot faster than the last version I tried (1.1). Also, Firefox Sync now works a lot better than before. At least for the moment I’m going to stick with it.
