There's a lot of talk around these parts (especially lately) about "openness." And one of our favorite examples of "open" is Mozilla and Firefox. It's an open-source browser, developed in the open. And I've been following the development of Firefox Mobile (previously known as Fennec) way back from its start (and finish) with Windows Mobile.

So it was quite the treat to meet with Mozilla principal project manager Thomas Arend at CTIA and give the release candidate of Firefox for Android a spin.

Forget the early complaints that previous builds were too big and too slow. Now that Firefox is just about ready for release, it's lighter, faster and is about to become my daily mobile browser, thanks to Mozilla's excellent sync system.

Anyhoo, check out the video above, and there's a more formal video with Thomas after the break.
