Sneak peek of Firefox on the Nexus One

Firefox Mobile (aka Fennec or Pocketfox) is scheduled to hit Android later this year and it appears the Mozilla team is making good progress. We saw Firefox for Android render its first page earlier this month, but it was running in the emulator. Now Mozilla has posted a pic on their Facebook page that shows Firefox running on a Nexus One.

As you can see from the screen below, this is the desktop Firefox browser running in Android. Mozilla engineer Vladimir Vukićević says, “We’re testing with the full interface because it’s significantly more complex than the mobile UI and stresses Gecko much more.  So, if the full UI works, then Fennec should work fine as well.”

There is still no word when the mobile UI will get implemented or a possible beta release, but at least we can see some progress. The feature that excites me the most about Firefox Mobile for Android is the growing library of add-ons.

Mobile UI still to come.
