Android Central

Firefox fans listen out, the latest version of Mozillas popular mobile browser, version 8.0, is now live in the Android Market. 

The update promises improved performance, along with the ability to add bookmarked sites to the home screen, and their master password function. This basically allows you to encrypt all your saved passwords with one master password for increased security.

Firefox 8 for Android live in the Market now

Flash support will be available in version 10. If you follow their nightly builds you can see for yourself. Two more major releases and you will have it.

Only reason I have this browser is for NTLM support. HC/ICS have NTLM built into the stock browser. Right now GB and lower don't. Only Android browser to support NTLM unless the OEM/ODM built it in special.

I don't get why they just don't add flash support? That's something Android has a leg up on and this just defeats the purpose of surfing on a Android phone. Sigh. I'd like to use it if it had it!

Why even bicker about Flash support? The browser is a resource hog and a turtle without it.

Firefox has gone by the wayside even on desktop machines. It's built nothing like it was originally intended to be back in its Firebird/Phoenix days.

14mb? Wow. I'll stick with Dolphin which is 3.22mb, is fast, has tabbed browsing and is all-around the best browser out there for Android. Plus, with Flash support from Adobe being nixed, who cares about Flash support?
