Android Firefox Now Faster With Fantastic New Features [Updates]

Ads by Google

If you were one of the users frustrated by the problems with the Firefox app on Android when it first launched, then you are in luck. Mozilla just issued a massive update that overhauls every nearly every single detail of the mobile browser and makes it better overall. The update takes an app that had potential and actually realizes much of it.

The first thing you will notice is how much faster the new version of the app is. Everything runs smoothly and according to Johnathan Nightingale, director of Firefox Engineering, “you don’t feel like you are fighting it”.

Nightingale also claims that you can use this app to do nearly anything you could do with a browser on a computer. For people who are constantly browsing the web on their Android device, that is some fantastic news.

Another huge feature is called Firefox Sync. This allows you to bring your bookmarks, browsing history and passwords from your desktop to your Android device.

Firefox on Android now supports flash. It uses a tap-to-play feature, which allows you to take control over when a flash part of a page runs.

Of course, Firefox on Android also supports HTML 5, so developers can create rich experiences for their end users.

If you are an Android user looking for a much-improved browsing experience, now is the time to take a second look at Firefox.

    I’ve been using this since yesterday and it’s actually really good. Old Firefox versions for Android were really slow, but they’ve really sped it up. Well done, Mozilla!
