The fellows at Mozilla have updated Firefox for Android to Version 6, and it comes with a huge changelog full of fixes, improvements, and features. Things like a visual update for phones running Gingerbread, better right-to-left language support, and adjustment of page element locations and sizes when using on a tablet. We won't list each individual change here, but they're available at the source link. There's also over 160 add-ons now available, ranging from Ad-blocking to themeing with personas. With the same rendering engine as the desktop version, Firefox mobile can handle pages with complicated scripts better than the stock Android browser, or other browsers based on stock. Not that anyone would want to, but it's close to the point where we could use our system and write blog posts with it.
Firefox mobile is shaping up nicely, and if you haven't had a look lately, you really should. Download link is after the break, for devices running Android 2.0 and higher.
