Firefox for Android Gets a ‘Screaming Fast’ Upgrade

Mozilla in Android is now getting it’s share of popularity. Check this article from PCWorld.com and see how fast the upgrade of Firefox.

Mozilla on Tuesday rolled out a brand-new version of its popular Firefox browser for Android that’s designed to deliver faster performance, a fresh new look, and Flash support, among many new features.

“The new Firefox for Android is a snappy and dynamic upgrade to mobile browsing that makes it faster and easier to get where you want to go on the Web,” reads the official announcement on the Mozilla Blog.

Designed for smartphones running Android 2.2 or later, the new Firefox 14 for Android is now available in the Google Play Market as a free download.

‘Dramatic Performance Improvements’

First and foremost among Firefox for Android’s new features are significantly faster speeds, Mozilla says.

“We redesigned Firefox for Android to make it a screaming fast and personalized upgrade to mobile browsing that lets you take your Web experience everywhere you go,” Mozilla explains. “You’ll notice dramatic performance improvements that make Firefox on your Android phone super fast with everything from startup and page load times to panning and zooming and Web app performance.”

In fact, Firefox for Android is apparently twice as fast as the stock Android browser on Mozilla’s Eideticker benchmark, which measures the user’s Web experience. It’s also significantly faster on standard industry benchmarks, such as Sunspider.
