Hi guys, if you go to play store you can now download firefox 19 beta which works on our zte blade phones :)

Previously, the browser required an 800MHz ARMv6 processor or faster, but Mozilla lowered the requirement to 600MHz, along with 512MB of memory, and HVGA (480x320 pixels) screen resolution.

The browser is 21.37mb btw.

more info: http://news.cnet.com...-android-reach/


Firefox 20 will have a memory requirement of just 384MB, a customizable homepage, HTML5 context menus support and private browsing.

Last time I tried firefox it was horrifically sluggish and worked fine. Has this changed? A spec change is meaningless if its still slow.
And I'm not talking about benchmarks but how it actually is to use.

Frankly the last time I used the desktop version it had pretty much the same problems. It could ace a webpage 0.01 seconds faster than its competitors but spent several seconds longer loading itself up which kinda defeated the point. :D

The desktop version is actually pretty quick now in v18 as it has a new javascript engine. The phone version is fairly slow, but so is android's and opera's. I'd rather have a slower browser that could render modern html5 webpages properly than a faster old browser.

It can't by default, but there is an addon for it.
FF has a nice plugin architecture... Even though I'm not sure it's good for phones as it is. I mean, I installed an addon and there were no permissions shown to be accepted, which I guess means that every addon can use the rights of the browser, so a malicious addon, once installed can easily do anything with ff's current permissions! :o
