  • One day ahead of the Google I/O event, where Chrome will probably be announced as standard part of the Android Jelly Bean experience, Mozilla also unveiled its latest Firefox Beta release for Android. The browser is now available in the Google Play Store and comes with flash support, redesign UI and new start page.

    Know that the new features are addressed to phones only, so tablets don’t get anything special. Other modifications include significant performance upgrades, although the users who tested it said that on some occasions the browser felt slow. There’s also an updated minimum system requirement to Android 2.2+ for optimized experience. Among the known issues there’s the fact that Flash is not supported on tablets and non ICS Tegra 2 units. Galaxy Note has some issues with the stylus interacting with the browser via virtual keyboard.

    Find in page is also not supported yet. As far as I can see from the Play Store page of the browser, people require that Mozilla reduces RAM usage and complain about the lack of text copying features. The browser is completely free, takes up 17MB of space and can be downloaded from here.
