Firefox 4 Beta unleashed and TechieDan has finally gotten his jump onto the beta stage. Here is where there would be bugs encountered in order to help the Mozilla team to create the ultimate browser experience.
The interface for the Firefox 4 Beta is simply amazing with it’s fluid like tabs and buttons. Browser also loads much faster. It also boasts of a NEW Sync interface which allows one to sync their preferences and sync with another Firefox browser on another PC.
But what’s a browser?
A browser is just like any other browser. The Mozilla team though has given us instead to Android and Maemo users a mobile version of their browser. Another thumbs up to the team there.
How to get this wonderful app? Simply point your location to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/mobile/beta/ and you’re off for download of the mobile application. Sad to say, this browser only supports a few mobile devices.They are
Firefox is compatible with Android 2.0 and above devices.

Supported Devices – Tested
HTC Desire HD
HTC Droid Incredible

Motorola Droid X
Samsung I9000 Galaxy S (AT&T Captivate, Verizon Fascinate, T-Mobile Vibrant, Sprint Epic 4G)
Supported Devices – Not Tested
HTC Desire Z (T-Mobile G2)
What does this mean? For older devices like the HTC Hero, this will definitely not be good for them, even if they have upgraded to Android 2.1. The reason, with the requirements of storage space encompassing 32MB on the phone, it’s just not possible. Another sad day for Techiedan as an owner of the HTC Hero.
For those of you who is looking to download Mobile Firefox 4 Beta, you may get it from the market or just scan this code using your QR Scan or any Code Scan applications.
Sidenote: Some sites being opened by the Firefox 4 Beta is buggy and crashes the browser. Let’s do our part as a community to ensure that Firefox would be released earlier after all the bugs are reported and fixed.
