This week's sidebar poll: What is your browser of choice?

Firefox for Android

If Chrome really isn't your browser of choice and you prefer Firefox, you'll be interested to know Mozilla has now released the latest update to the Google Play Store. This update targets tablets more so than anything else but it has plenty of all-around fixes included as well:

  • Native UI for tablets, including faster startup and a beautiful new Awesome Bar!
  • Desktop sites can now be requested from the menu
  • Even better tabs experience - now includes swipe to close
  • Find in page implemented
  • Support for SPDY networking protocol v3
  • Bookmarks and history can now be imported from the stock browser in the Settings

According to Mozilla, everything in this release is based on speed and performance so you should be able to notice pages opening faster, better panning and zooming and even improved startup times. The update is live now, so get to it.

It supports Lastpass. Now if I can get it to support Xmarks. Until then, I am still using Dolphin.

Shadowriver says:

Mobile Firefox got plug-in system, so anyone can make xmarks support any time

naliorg says:

Supporting plugins is awesome!

Seems a tiny bit slower than Chrome on a Galaxy Nexus w/ JB, but its definitely useable.

How did you get the tablet UI on the Nexus 7? It isn't enabled by default.

Love it!

Amazing , it's much much better than the last time I used it 3 months ago. It's really speedy and powerful.

You guys must try 3 finger-swipe adds-on: it works really well, although when you swipe it also roll you website but it's just the minor issue.

From now on, I use firefox and wait for the next update of Chrome
