Inserting integrated synchronization, enhancing the performance by splitting user interface and rendering processes, Mozilla has released the alpha version of its mobile browser.
Powering the Firefox 4, the Fennec 2.0 too is built on the same Gecko engine and is meant for smartphones running Google's Android operating system. The Fennec can now revert back more speedily to the user input says Stuart Parmenter, Mozilla's Mobile Team Technical Lead.
The Firefox Sync service has been improved to make it the Fennec 2.0, which keeps some of the services consistent across multiple computers and smartphones. These services include bookmarks, passwords, browser history, open tabs and other data.
"Firefox Sync built-in into the browser, which provides seamless access to Awesome Bar browsing history, bookmarks, passwords, form-fill data and open tabs”, says the Mozilla blog. The iPhone owners can access the sync through the free Firefox Home app whereas for all the ones who have been using the earlier Firefox editions, an add-on is all that is required to contact the sync.
The smartphones running Google's Android operating system can utilize the Fennec 2.0, but anyhow the offer does not go for all the smartphones available in the market. Motorola's Droid 2 and Droid X, HTC's Desire, EVO 4G and Legend, Droid Incredible are the smartphones in the list who can install the Fennec 2.0.
