Mozilla has been doing a lot of work to revamp its latest version of Firefox from quite some time. It’s in news that Mozilla just rolled out its beta version for mobiles for all those who have been waiting for it. The project was named “Fennec” but now the project is simply known as Firefox. Currently mobile version of Firefox 4 Beta is available on Android and Maemo platform. The improvement which has been taken care of in this version is stability, performance and functionality.

Earlier Maemo users were enjoying Firefox 1.1. The new version will let users enjoy Layers framework that aims to improve scrolling and zooming responsiveness of the browser. Those who are worried about their bookmarks, well for them there is Firefox Sync. The other feature which developers made sure to be present is support for HTML5. Firefox Addon lovers will get that feature too along with the awesome bar.
Those smartphones which won’t be able to use the new browser are iPhone and Blackberry. iPhone users still have to stay with Firefox Home app. As far as the technology is concerned, according to Mozilla, Firefox 4 Beta has been built on the very same technology platform which is used for desktop computers.
