New Firefox Delivers A ‘Big Improvement’ For Android Users

X

Mozilla has moved to deliver a swag of updates claiming that owners of Android devices will notice a big difference.The organisation claims that Firefox now supports compressed textures, giving developers greater freedom from video memory constraints to build graphically intensive games for browsers.

Gaming via a Firefox browser has also been improved due to a new Javascript engine and WebGL capabilities. Firefox for Android also features the browser’s signature “Awesome Screen” that stores all of a user’s browsing history, bookmarks, passwords and form data.

Using a new Firefox Sync feature, users can pull information directly from a desktop.

Mozilla claims that developers can now make use of a Javascript Debugger built right into Firefox, which can be used to dive into web code or even remotely debug apps running through Firefox on an Android device.

The mobile browser also receives an overall UI update for Android tablets, making better use of screen space and improving performance for faster load times. Legacy tablet owners even get an enhancement with Flash support now added on Android tablets running Honeycomb.

Perhaps the biggest addition to Firefox on Android comes from the improved HTML5 capabilities, opening up new possibilities for web applications.

To show off HTML5 on Android, Mozilla has released BrowserQuest, a multiplayer role-playing game playable across both the desktop and mobile browsers.
