Browser giant Mozilla has revealed that Firefox 4 beta for mobile is now available to download and test on Android and Maemo devices.
Firefox 4 Beta includes Firefox Sync, which promotes common browsing on desktop, notebook and mobile platforms. With Firefox Sync, users can take your browsing history, bookmarks, tabs, passwords and form-fill data with them anywhere so they never have to retype passwords or long URLs again.
In addition, Firefox 4 for mobile also incorporates pinch to zoom.
“A major focus of this release is to increase performance and responsiveness. Two of the big architecture changes are Electrolysis and Layers. Our alpha contained Electrolysis which allowed the browser interface to run in a separate process from the one rendering Web content, resulting in a much more responsive browser. This beta brings the Layers pieces which improve overall performance and in graphics areas such as scrolling, zooming and animations” said a post on the official Firefox blog.
