New features in Fennec 2.0 for Android nightlies
It's been a couple weeks since Mozilla unleashed their Fennec alpha builds upon us, and some welcome changes are making their way into the product. For anyone living under a rock, Fennec is Mozilla's code name for the version of Firefox for mobile devices, and something a whole lot of us are looking forward to. Some of the changes are big, some not so much, and some are just magical.
The biggest changes come to the Awesomebar, which has been rebranded as the Awesomescreen (probably to hold more awesome) and the layout has been changed, merging things like bookmarks and search into a single UI. This gives more room for things like badging the Awesomescreen URL's with web metadata, so you get a useful visual like this:
Other changes like improved right-to-left locale support (think Hebrew) and support for Android's native notifications are also quite nice. If you're curious, and especially if the first pre-alpha build didn't work so well for you, head over to the download page (on your Android device) and give the latest nightly build a shot.
