Mozilla’s mobile Firefox browser, Fennec, has hit Alpha 2 and is faster, smoother and the usability of the features have been improved. This new release has also got 1 new add-on besides URL Fixer – AutoAuth which simply adds password memory for sites that require authentication. From the looks of this Alpha built, it seems to be on the way to become the best mobile web browser and if developers start making add-ons for Fennec like Firefox, it’ll be truly unbeatable.


Most of the changes are under the hood. Alpha 2  features a Firefox 3-like “awsome bar” ,  popup blocker, password manager, and option to clear private data. For now it runs on Nokia Internet Tablets. You can also take it for a test spin on Windows, OS X , and Linux computers.

Fennec is also available for Windows, Mac & Linux to give you a feel of the Firefox Mobile web browser – To run Fennec for Windows, all you have to do is download and unzip an 8MB file and click on Fennec.exe. Up pops a small web browser with nothing but a URL bar visible. Type in an address and away you go. You can scroll up and down on a web page by clicking and dragging the page. And you can zoom in on the content by double clicking.

You can get Fennec here.

Looks cool doesn’t it.  And here is the simple version when small size is required —

I think the simple one isn’t required … they should just use the original one.
