Tools

Open-source software development initiative Mozilla unveiled the release candidate version of Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo, bringing the browser to the brink of its final, official iteration. Available in over 10 languages via Android Market and Maemo device download, this edition of Firefox 4 promises faster scrolling, improved responsiveness with Firefox Sync (which touts a seamless browsing experience between the desktop and smartphone) and other user experience upgrades.

Mozilla first launched the Firefox 4 beta mobile web browser in October 2010. Last month, it said that tests on JavaScript benchmarks indicate Firefox 4 Beta is now faster than the stock Android browser. Other features include close to 100 Firefox Add-ons, enabling users to personalize their web experience, as well as the Awesome Bar, which offers access to recent browsing history, bookmarks and tabs.
