Firefox For Android Receives Major Update

Firefox for Android

Mozilla is doing the best it can to constantly optimize their web browsers. A couple of days ago the Firefox for PCs reached version 15, and now its time for the Android smartphones and tablets version to be updated.

The latest Firefox for Android update have started to roll out in Google Play and I recommend you try it yourself in order to see it at work. In my opinion Firefox for Android is getting better and better with each update.

There’s a tough competition out there, too, with Google’s Chrome for Android is being the most powerful rival. Chrome for Android is rapidly winning market share on this segment, just like it happened to the desktop version.

The Firefox for Android web browsers requires 18 MB of available storage and it works on any smartphone or tablet running Android 2.2 Froyo or later. This is an advantage for Firefox, as Google’s Chrome can only be installed by the users whose smartphones or tablets are running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The new Firefox comes with synchronization with the desktop version, new password management, and you can save tabs or bookmarks. Now it was optimized for tablets, bringing a nicer design and faster start-up times.

The experience with tab navigation just become easier, as you can close a web page with a simple swype. Mozilla also implemented support for SPDY networking protocol v3. You can download Firefox web browser from Android in Google Play.
