Native Firefox browser for Android looks fresh, adds Flash and HTML5 support, and is faster

Native Firefox on Android

Google might have released Chrome for iOS today but Mozilla also brought out something good a few days ago – native Firefox 14.0 for Android! Sorry, I forgot to blog about it! My bad…

The new mobile Firefox is faster, supports Flash and HTML5, and has a new look as well. You can, of course, sync your bookmarks, tabs and other settings with your desktop Firefox installation.

Interested? Get it now from the Google Play store. If you’re like me who had trouble downloading this app into my ICS-encrusted Galaxy Tab through the Google Play store – seems like the Galaxy Tab is not listed as a compatible device despite mine running CM9 – you may download the APK from unofficial sources which you should be able to find quite easily with a simple web search.

Videos to showcase the new browser after the break:

    • Yes, it’s a good thing they didn’t skimp on features on the new Firefox. I use Google Chrome more often on my PC and Android tablet nowadays but I’m still glad to see a greatly improved version of Firefox for Android. With it having Flash support, I might even use it more on my Galaxy Tab than I use Chrome.
