Mozilla shows rapid progress on Firefox Mobile for Android

Mozilla continues to pump out regular progress reports of their mobile browser for Android. Earlier this month we saw Firefox running in the Android emulator. Then we got a sneak peek of the desktop version of the browser on a Nexus One.

Developers chose to focus on the desktop UI first because it was “significantly more complex than the mobile UI and stresses Gecko much more”. After the desktop version was working, devs moved on to the mobile UI (Fennec) and already have it implemented.

Two screenshots were posted on the Firefox for Mobile Facebook page that demonstrate Fennec on a Motorola Droid and Nexus One.

A final release is not expected till late this year, but at the rate things appear to be moving maybe we will see a public beta by summer.
