Mozilla wants your feedback on Firefox for Android

Have you tried the pre-alpha build of Fennec for Android? Mozilla continues to ramp up development on the mobile version of Firefox and now they are adapting the user interface to Android.

Until now, the only engineers working on Fennec were platform developers whose job was to get the back-end code running. The current builds were designed around the look and feel of the Maemo OS, but now UI engineers are beginning to shape the browser to take full advantage of Android.

A new Mozilla employee, Matt Brubeck, has provided a quick progress report on the latest developments around Fennec. The list of issues is long, but Mozilla is listening to feedback and working feverishly to start providing nightly builds. The main areas of improvement include zoom and multi-touch, menu and back buttons, application size, hardware compatibility, and much more.

If you would like to participate in this open source project, join the official Fennec Android group and share your feedback. For the latest updates on new builds follow @MozMobile on Twitter and join the Firefox for mobile Facebook group.
